Digital Dialogue: 90-Minute Conversation w/ Optional 30-Minute Q & A with Hosts!
July 11, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT
Online conversation happening July 11, 2019 @ 7:00 – 9:00 pm ET / 4:00 – 6:00 pm PT (adjust for your time zone)
We are in an age of wonder and amazement with technology. It can go anywhere with us and we can be reachable at any time. We use technology to order our groceries, navigate our cities, keep up with breaking news, family members living away and in some cases remain connected to our politicians and faith-based communities. So many of us are reachable and can respond immediately to beeping, buzzing, and ringing of texts, emails and phone calls. We like what we feel when our phones ring or ping us with a new message and that makes us want more. Some experts have suggested that technology is controlling us, that we have lost control of it…like an addiction. Is technology our friend, the life-saving tool of the 21st Century or a manipulator of our minds and master of our time? Who is in charge?
Here is the conversation guide. Some of the questions explored include:
- Are there ways that technology has improved or hurt your in-person relationships and interactions?
- Do you ever turn off your devices? Why or why not?
- Do you want to change your own behavior around technology? How do you think you can do that?
You will need a device with a webcam to participate (preferably a computer or tablet rather than a cell phone).
