"Be a hero. Resist to the smartest technology design!"
The technology industry has a large part of its business model built on creating addictions. The goal of apps and digital devices is to get users to spend as much time as possible with them. Which, like any addiction, greatly reduces the quality of life over time. And it leads to problems with concentration, worse sleep, reduced well-being…
Does this mean we should give up on technology completely? Push them out from our everyday life and to start living in woods? No. Smartphones, computers and smart devices can really help you in your life. But we must remain the masters of our time. There are healthy ways how to use technology in personal and family life.
Slow Tech Institute is here to help you. This initiative brings together experts who study new technologies and sociological, psychological or physiological phenomena associated with them. Whether you are a parent, teacher, doctor, or just an ordinary technology user, this site offers news from the latest research, tips and advice on how to start living with technology in a healthier way.
Slow Tech Institute is not limited by the boundaries of this website. We organize lectures, teach at schools and evaluate game applications. Find more in the section Projects.
