About this Course

About the Course

In this course, Dr Dean Burnett (Cardiff University) explores the relationship between cognition and digital technology. In the first lecture, we think about how the assumptions about the relationship between cognition and digital technology compare to reality. In the second lecture, we think about what scientific research has shown regarding the impacts of digital technology on cognition. Next, we think about both the good and the bad impacts that digital technology can have on cognition. In the fourth and final lecture, we think about some research methods used to study the relationships between digital technology and cognition. Photo by Marvin Meyer on Unsplash
