Have we traded conversation for mere connection? For all of us who’ve tried to talk to a teenager (or even an adult) glued to a smart phone, the answer’s obvious. Now one of the world’s most perceptive media scholars, MIT’s Sherry Turkle, whom The New York Times declared the “conscience for the tech world,” addresses this very topic in her new book, Reclaiming Conversation. Based on five years of research in homes, schools, and the workplace, Turkle argues that we’ve arrived at a better understanding of where our technology can and cannot take us and that the time to reclaim conversation … is now. See this Guggenheim Fellow and author of five books share her incredibly astute findings at the JCC of San Francisco.
