How Technology Affects Students Socio-Emotional Learning


This is a video page on the Oxford Learning Blog, where Sherry Turkle, a professor of Social Studies of Science and Technology at MIT points out that over the past 20 years there has been a 40% decline in college students on measurements of empathy. Turkle describes her research of where devices now, when used inappropriately get in the way of very basic important human feelings and that transforms the nature of the relationships. This resource is of interest in that it supports my initial research assumptions that technology negatively impacts emotional learning, and thus techniques must be innovated to harmonize educational technology and socio-emotional development.
