deviced: balancing life and technology in a digital world

 

A spot-on analysis of screen dilemmas with a fascinating psychological spin and focus on solutions. An important read for everyone concerned about helping our screenagers, specifically, and our society in general.
— Delaney Ruston, MD Creator and Director of SCREENAGERS: Growing up in the Digital Age
As technology advances at breakneck speed, and we, with our fitness trackers and smart watches, measure and record every step of its progress, doreen dodgen-magee is paying careful attention to the deeper ramifications. With the keen eye of a researcher and the warm heart of a friend, parent, and teacher, doreen shares invaluable insight into life in the tech age. Doreen is no Luddite. Her goal in this book is not to call us back to calculators and rotary phones, but rather to remind us of the value of “fiery, embodied lives” — lives that use technology for our benefit without stunting our own relational and developmental growth. This book is an invaluable tool as all of us wrestle for control over the most important spaces in our lives, the spaces we share with each other.
— Tracy Balzer, author of Permission to Ponder: Contemplative Wisdom for the Spiritually Distracted
For everyone feeling saturated, seduced or assaulted by the constant stream of electronic content available at the touch of a button, or finding that they care a little too much how many likes, followers and comments they garner online, Deviced! is a welcome antidote. Smart, thoughtful, well-researched and practical, Doreen Dodgen-Magee makes a compelling case for learning how to integrate technology wisely into our lives, rather than drown in it. So turn off notifications, shut down the computer and silence your smartphone long enough to read this book.
— Brigid Schulte Author of the New York Times bestselling Overwhelmed: Work, Love & Play when No One has the Time Director of The Better Life Lab at New America
This is a much needed book for our time. Doreen/Dr. Dodgen-Magee presents a balanced, nuanced, and compassionate view of the impact devices have on our development. The book is not only about our use of devices; it is about our shared humanity. Doreen calls all of us to engage technology thoughtfully and reflectively so we become more relationally connected and more human. You will come away challenged and enriched.
