Today we are talking about something that all parents have to deal with in this day and age...smartphones and technology. Digital distraction is all around and sometimes it can distract our children from the task at hand. What is this digital distraction's impact on productivity you may ask?
In a recent article from npr.org, entitled 'Learning In The Age Of Digital Distraction,' talks about a 'new book, The Distracted Mind: Ancient Brains in a High Tech World,' and how it 'explores the implications of, and brain science behind, this evolution (some might say devolution). It was written Adam Gazzaley, a neurologist and a professor at the University of California, San Francisco, and research psychologist Larry D. Rosen. To learn more about what the author of this book found and his conclusions, visit the original article link here.
