Connected, but Alone?

“As we expect more from technology, do we expect less from each other? Sherry Turkle studies how our devices and online personas are redefining human connection and communication — and asks us to think deeply about the new kinds of connection we want to have.” –

I feel this is a relevant TED Talk that applies not only to individuals, but to students, teachers and all those around us. The talk is thought provoking and makes the viewer reflect on their own technology use and communication with others.


“We expect more from technology and less from each other.” – Sherry Turkle

“The feeling that ‘no one is listening to me’ make us want to spend time with machines that seem to care about us.” – Sherry Turkle
