Father/Daughter discussion about technology
I sat on the periphery and listened in. There was talk about how technology is changing our brains, how we think, what we think about. I heard mention of dopamine, delayed gratification and information. He was sharing a lesson for his Sociology class and she wanted nothing more than to know what it was about. I heard elated, "YES's" from him as she grasped complex concepts and immediately related them directly to her past 24 hours. One day with a laptop of her own use and an email account; she instantly knows of what he will speak about in this lesson and the dynamics of it. She loves to learn. She teaches us so much.
