Have you ever wondered what exactly, the Internet is doing to our brains? Is there such a thing as literally too much information? Tonight, as part of One Day University, an attempt to get adult students to go back to school for a single day (or night), Columbia University professor Anne Nelson, who teaches new media in development communications, will share her insights into how digital media affects digital natives, as well as digital immigrants, and offer warning signs to help you and your family know when it’s time to shut off your devices.
