TEDx SPEAKER TALK | Learning and memory in the age of digital distractions | Alcântara | 11.89 – 22.57€

November 24, 2018 @ 19:00 - 21:00

€11.89 – €22.57

Get off your phone already!
That is, unless you’re reading this. If you’re reading this, ignore that impulse to check those incoming texts and other windows for just a minute. Still here?
Good.

Dr. Anastasia Dedyukhina, according to The Huffington Post UK, is “a coach, TEDx and public speaker, and author of Homo Distractus. She got rid of her smartphone as well as her senior international career in digital marketing when she realized how dependent she had become on her gadget. She eventually set up Consciously Digital, a consultancy that helps people and organizations develop a healthier relationship with technology.”
Now, even without a smartphone, Anastasia managed to find her way to Lisbon.

Here’s what the organizers of her new talk tell us:
“In this entertaining and interactive talk, Dr. Dedyukhina explores how the internet is changing our brain, memory, and learning, and why our devices are so irresistible. She will explain how memory works, discuss various memorization strategies, and provide you with the best strategies to stay focused and learn in the digital age, and manage digital distractions. In this talk, you will learn how to take back control of your time and attention without getting rid of your tech.”

Doors open: 19h
Talk starts: 19:30h

LANGUAGE: ENGLISH
