Monica Bormetti, psychologist and digital wellbeing consultant. Author of #Egophonia (Hoepli), a book that aims to promote a conscious use of smartphone.
Smartphones between us and our life
Technology has significantly improved our lives but if we do not use it consciously there are consequences from a cognitive and emotional point of view. Receiving all day long notifications can be stressful.
Moreover many apps and services in our smartphones use psychological tricks in order to increase our usage time.
The result is that our brain gets used to be distracted all the time. All of this affects our ability to stay focused and be creative. In her speech at Alkemia, Monica Bormetti will talk about:
- effects of technology on cognitive skills;
- how to rebalance the use of digital.
