This course has been intense in regards to reading. The core readings themselves unfortunately don’t make much sense due to my lack of experience and background in technology. I have purchased many books and read whenever I can. I read at home, on the road at work and even in the bath. I use technology in multifarious ways to help retain information and key points. I read aloud, I use apps that read articles while on the move, I take screenshots of specific paragraphs which are then put in to folders. The link attached made me consider the amount of time I waste acknowledging notifications, e-mails, calls and office chat. In a world where I feel the need to be accessible to others I can become easily distracted. Over the last two weeks, I have switched off my computer or phone and locked myself in a room for a period of time where I am fully focused and my brain is ‘Switched on’.
