Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Have you ever felt like you might be serving your device more than it is serving you? Or been a little creeped out about the digital ad or suggested article that somehow aligned a little too closely with the thoughts in your head?

Manoush Zomorodi, author of Bored & Brilliant: How Spacing Out Can Unlock Your Most Productive & Creative Self and host of popular podcasts like ZigZag, Note to Self and now NPR’s TED Radio Hour advocates not for a “digital detox” but “balancing the way we use technology and making sure, as best we can, that our gadgets align with what we hold dear and true”. In this session, we will interactively connect using two important steps on the path to digital wellness:

1. Establishing an awareness of your digital habits, identity and privacy
2. Exploring strategies and actions to make sure you are living your best life with tech
