It’s the age of mobile. According to Pew Research Internet Project, over 90 percent of American adults own a cellphone, and 73 percent of American adults online use a social networking site of some kind. Research from software analytics company New Relic supposedly found that Americans check their devices an average of 150 times a day. But scores of articles about “tech anxiety” and “tech addiction” make it abundantly clear that our relationship with technology is very complicated. As educators, it’s worth thinking about how our devices are changing the way we interact with each other. Many of the videos I’ve gathered below are just for fun, to give us a laugh about our technological foibles, but they can also be conversation starters about how technology saturation affects our lives.
