In this meticulously researched and necessary book, Mari Swingle shows how the i-world is hijacking young people’s minds and even their brains. Her practical advice guides us to become masters, not servants, of the technology we are bequeathing to our children. —Gabor Maté M.D., co-author, Hold On To Your Kids
In this age of screens we’re beset with a pack of new emotional and behavioral conundrums. Mari K. Swingle walks us through the fundamentals of these changes with a kindness and clarity I find deeply refreshing. i-Minds is a well-researched guide for teachers and parents keen on understanding the ramifications of our new media climate. —Michael Harris, author, The End of Absence.
Cell phones, computers and other devices, are now completely embedded in global culture. Engaging and entertaining yet scientifically rigorous, i-Minds demonstrates how our constant connectivity is rapidly changing our brains, what the dangers are, and what positive steps we can all take to embrace new technology while protecting our well-being and steering our future in a much more human direction.
An eye-opener. This book left me speechless. i-Minds made me look inward at my own relationships with people and technology and consider whether I liked the impact instead of just blindly following it.—Rob Krall, host, Bottom up Radio; publisher, OpEdNews
