Public Understanding of Technology
Digital technology in all of its forms, from personal devices to complex systems, is now embedded in human life. The experiences, and epistemological implications, of being “digital natives”and “digital immigrants” are reshaping personal relationships and societal structures. These developments also require special attention to their impact on mental and physical health, to how people work and play, and to an expanding understanding of health and wellness. CDE scholars including Cal Newport, Will Fleisher, and Meg Leta Jones are leaders in this important and wide-reaching field of study and practice; their work is featured prominently both in academic venues and in mainstream and popular media.
