'Digital overload' is making us more easily distracted

Digital multi-tasking could be bad for the brain, scientists say. 

A study showed that those who browse the internet while texting friends and listening to music do worse in simple mental tests. 

They are more easily distracted and, ironically, find it harder to switch between tasks than people who concentrate on one thing at a time, the researchers say.

Those who browse the internet while texting friends and listening to music do worse in simple mental tests, a study found 

The findings add to evidence that ‘ digital overload’ is interfering with the way people think and behave. 

Some neuroscientists argue that the brain is geared to handle one thing at a time. When asked to juggle several things at once, it is forced to flick frantically between them, like a performer spinning plates. 

This puts the brain under stress and means it doesn’t perform as well, it is claimed. 

The study by researchers from Stanford University, California, classified 262 students into ‘heavy’ or ‘light’ multi-taskers and compared their performance in a series of computerised mental tests. 

The heavy multi-taskers had much more difficulty filtering out irrelevant information from their environment and their memory, the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences reports. 

They also found it more difficult to switch from one task to another and performed worse in the tests. 

Communication expert Professor Clifford Nass said: ‘In an ever more saturated media environment, media multi-tasking – a person’s consumption of more than one item or stream of content at the same time – is becoming an increasingly prevalent phenomenon, especially among the young. 

‘These results demonstrate that media multi-tasking is associated with a distinct approach to fundamental information processing.’ 

But he added that it was unclear if multi-tasking caused people to become distracted, or whether those prone to distraction preferred to surround themselves with electronic media. 

Earlier this year Susan Greenfield, an Oxford University neuroscientist and director of the Royal Institution, warned that websites such as Twitter and Facebook could be triggering changes in the brains of millions of young people. 

This was ‘infantilising’ them and robbing them of traditional social skills, she said. 

Multi-tasking could be more harmful for teenagers than adults because their brains are still developing. Once a young person’s brain has been conditioned to multi-task, they may struggle to concentrate later in life.

Is Technology Producing A Decline In Critical Thinking And Analysis?

From Science Daily:

ScienceDaily (Jan. 29, 2009) — As technology has played a bigger role in our lives, our skills in critical thinking and analysis have declined, while our visual skills have improved, according to research by Patricia Greenfield, UCLA distinguished professor of psychology and director of the Children’s Digital Media Center, Los Angeles.

Learners have changed as a result of their exposure to technology, says Greenfield, who analyzed more than 50 studies on learning and technology, including research on multi-tasking and the use of computers, the Internet and video games. Her research was published this month in the journal Science.

A new operating system for 2009

Good OS, most known for its gOS Linux that debuted in Wal-Mart computers, today announced “Cloud,” a new operating system that boots into a browser with Google, Yahoo! and Live in seconds, and optionally boots into Windows. Good OS will preview Cloud on a GIGABYTE Touch-Screen Netbook at the Netbook World Summit and online at http://www.thinkgos.com. GIGABYTE Touch-Screen Netbooks will be preloaded with Cloud and Windows XP together early next year.

“We are excited to preview the GIGABYTE Touch-Screen Netbook with Cloud and Windows together, said a Good OS spokesperson. “With Cloud, GIGABYTE Netbooks will power on to the Internet in seconds, while still supporting killer applications together with Windows XP.”

Cloud uniquely integrates a web browser with a compressed Linux operating system kernel for immediate access to Internet, integration of browser and rich client applications, and full control of the computer from inside the browser.Cloud features a beautifully designed browser with an icon dock for shortcuts to favorite apps, tabs for multi-tasking between web and rich client apps, and icons to switch to Windows, power off, and perform other necessary system functions. Users power on their computers, quickly boot into Cloud for Internet and basic applications, and then just power off or boot into Windows for more powerful desktop applications.

“Cloud is my favorite gOS product yet,” said David Liu, Founder and CEO of Good OS. “Just seconds after I power on, I’m Googling, Yahooing, and truly Living. I am very excited about the upcoming GIGABYTE Touch-Screen Netbooks with Cloud and Windows. I think the GIGABYTE Touch-Screen Netbook’s forward thinking hardware and software will make it the best Netbook to hit the market!”

More details about Cloud and GIGABYTE Touch-Screen Netbooks will be released on Januaary 8 2009 at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
