We need to “Reclaim Conversation”

Professor Sherry Turkle is the founder (2001) and current director of the MIT Initiative on Technology and Self.  She studies human connection is being impacted by technology and our online lives.  Through her work and most recent book “Reclaiming Conversation: The Power of Talk in a Digital Age” she challenges us to look closely at our new forms of connections, the impact technology is having on our lives, and offers conversation as the rememdy.  In this video she shares her work at Google’s office in Cambridge, MA.

While Turkle offers conversation as a remedy, we still need the HOW TO. How do you work coversation into our human institutions? How do you create spaces and structures to prioritize the conversations we need to have?  The “how to” is the purpose of the Small Group Lab.
