Dare to Unplug

In a world where people are increasingly attached to and dependent on technology, Nick Barella and Chris Mire decided to undergo a challenge and dared to “unplug.” The two gave up technology of all kinds for an entire week, seeking to illuminate both the beneficial and adverse effects technology has on our everyday lives. Through this TEDxUND talk, they will explore how technology impacts our productivity, relationships, and capacity for creative thought. Nick and Chris will share their personal experiences as well as current studies and research to provide a new perspective on technology’s role in our society, challenging their audience to make helpful technology adjustments in their own lives.
