Attending to Attention in the Age of Screens Since we don’t pay for many of our apps and pay minimally for our streaming services, we are paying with something more valuable than modern day currency: our time and attention. The tech industry has built technology to take hold of our attention and keep us on our devices. This presentation will increase your awareness about the attention economy, share student voice, insight and data related to persuasive design, and conclude with tips and solutions that young people are using to practice digital well-being. These youth-inspired tips can be used for the whole family! High school students are encouraged to register and attend for a separate teen track.

You will leave with tactics to address the challenges and resources specifically designed to help live with more balance and intention when it comes to technology.
