Psychology&Emerging Technology

Psychology and Emerging Technology
Technology and new media are changing how we think, relate, connect, learn, and live. We will examine what a growing body of psychological research tells us about the pros and cons of our ever-changing digital world. We will review material on the use of cell phones, social media, video games, the internet, and artificial intelligence, examining topics such as attention and distraction, addiction, self-esteem, morality, and relationships with friends and family. The course will draw on multiple areas of psychology and involve both critical analysis of research and examination of our own behavior. (not open to students who have taken FYSE 1450 or PSYC 0415). 3 hrs. lect.
