We will be discussing the problem of distracting and addicting websites and apps, and looking at techniques or tools that help us have a more focused and deliberate online experience.

Following a short introduction we will share our own personal experiences of being distracted or "hooked" by websites and apps.

We will then break into groups (depending on the number of attendees) to generate ideas to tackle this problem. Examples could include installing an ad blocker, monitoring phone usage with an app, a digital detox, better business models, etc. Finally we will come back together to share our best ideas with the full group.

This is a Learning Forum session.
