Is the Internet Re-wiring our Brains?

brain wires social media energise 2.0 Google+Thanks to Paul Daly for drawing this to my attention on Google+.

Would suggest that the video below is a ‘must watch’ for all parents, marketers, educationists and anyone involved in the information dissemination and communications industry. Is the Internet re-wiring our brains? Is it making us stupid, reducing our ability to concentrate and think analytically?

Having spent most of my career in Higher Education, I can easily empathise with many of the sentiments expressed in the video. Whether it is a force for good or bad is open to debate.

Perhaps more than any other post, we would very much welcome your comments and feedback on the video given the very important implications it raises.

Take care
