How technology and social media affect human behaviours
Please note that for mobiles we stream the presentation slides and audio of the speaker.
Dr Mary Aiken discusses the detrimental long-term effects of the internet on human behaviours. Considering the impact of the online environment on vulnerable demographics, Dr Aiken addresses a new conceptualisation of technology as a 'place', and advocates for more boundaries in the interest of protecting young people online.
