Technology is great. We have the world literally at our fingertips: we can research, play games, work, and keep in touch with our friends and colleagues. All this on devices that fit in the palm of our hands. But, for all its brilliance, technology still poses some dangers.
Being addicted to our tech means it’s easy to get distracted and attempt to multitask.
