■Class discussion: Would you be interested in a device like these glasses which would keep you constantly connected to the Internet? Find news articles about the benefits or dangers of being tied in to technology. Are people becoming distracted with shorter attention spans and unable to concentrate on a single task? Or, are they growing better able to multitask and use the wealth of information available online? What is information overload? What about driving – or even walking – while using electronic media? Are younger people better able to cope with technology?
