This is an evolving powerpoint that goes along with a paper I am writing on the impact of technology. Here is the abstract of the paper. The PPT is not was well organized yet, but it has served as a place to kepe my notes.
"Much is in the news today about what is becoming of the next generation. Discussants usually say one of two things. On one side, researchers say that technology will impact a child's development and lead to increases in narcissism. Others feel that there is nothing to be alarmed about and this is a common cry of every newer generation about the older. Using the current research as well as experiences from the classroom and consulting room, the author in this paper uses a psychoanalytic frame to redefine the question and hopefully establish a more practical way about thinking and feeling about technology, narcissism, and the state of things to come.
