This week I took my inspIriation from a WNYC project called Bored and Brilliant which challenges to reevaluate the role technology has in our lives. Are you up for the challenge?
This week, learners can try listening to a Randall's Listening exercise about smartphones or a rising new tech company that produces cell phones.
For original version please give a listen to any of the Note to Self episodes about the Bored and Brilliant project: The Case For Boredom, What 95 Minutes of Phone Time a Day Does to Us, or Challenges 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6.
Learners can read an article about cumpulsive Internet Disorder or the history of the Internet.
For original version, read some of the articles from the Bored and Brilliant project: 5 Reasons you Want to Be Bored and Brilliant, or What Your Phone Stats Say About You.
So, of course I challenge you to join me in the Bored and Brilliant challenge and write about it. How did it make you feel? How do you imagine your relationship with technology in the future?
