Module 1: Post 2 (Technology’s impact on our emotion)

The video with Dr. Lee Brown highlighted the importance of an emotional component to education, particularly with Indigenous learners. Dr. Brown’s video inspired me to explore how technology influences our emotions. I stumbled upon this article from Forbes which cites a study published in Computers and Human Behaviour where Grade 6 students who attended camp were tested vs. students who spent a week playing video games. The results are quite interesting, and speaks not only to the importance of emotion in social behaviour but also the impact screen time has on our ability to read and react appropriately as “emotionally responsible” beings.
