Technological advances introduced by a few mammoth companies have spread into the comforts of almost every home in the world. The possession of computers, smart-devices, and social media usages have now become an acceptable part of our world's culture and structure. This book considers how technology is evolving, changing our lifestyles, and psychologically altering individuals and the fabric of society.
There's now an entire generation that has been using technology through the most delicate mental and social developmental time in their lives. This book will present a framework on how to look at the cognitive and psychosocial developmental stages and the CDC's age-appropriate milestones of our children. It also provides insight into how these cues have adapted and sometimes disrupted children's young and vulnerable life stages.
You'll gain a perspective of the positive and negative aspects of computer learning, smart devices, particularly smart-phone usages and social media practices. The controversial Like button, and other innovations such as news-feed, socio-graph, and social influencers impact will be discussed in the light of these theorists.
In short, The Psychology of Evolving Technology looks at how tech innovations have changed our society through its many luxuries and conveniences and how it has altered our psyche, privileges, and moral outlook of society.
