Ethics: The Ethics of Technology: How to Out-Smart Your Smart Phone

Description

Technology is always transformative. But the changes it brings aren’t always so good — for us, our colleagues, our clients, our families or our firms. Our omnipresent personal technology surrounds us with ethical issues: from distracted driving to Netflix binging to online shopping at work. And that just scratches the surface.

This course focuses on the often-little-noticed ethical challenges of technology — and suggests ways of managing your technology, your time, and your energy to deal with them.

Greg Conderacci, who teaches this course, is no Luddite. He has all the same tech toys you do. And, as author of Getting UP! Supercharging Your Energy, he has researched and written extensively about their impact. A BLI Senior Fellow, consultant, and faculty member at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, he is a sought-after adviser for personal and corporate change.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

* Recognize ethical challenges of technology
* List ways technology affects our brain and thinking skills
* Recognize the difference between meditative thinking and calculative thinking
* Identify the positive and negative effects of networks
* Name ways to detox from technology and improve concentration

Major Topics

* Your brain on technology. How our tech addiction is changing the way we think — for better and for worse — including a long list of tech-induced mental disorders.
* Meet the Facebook bully. The profound sea-change in relationships caused by email, texting, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.
* Don’t bother me, I’m multitasking. Why it takes so long for you (and everybody else) to get anything done.
