Technology has permeated almost all aspects of our lives – from the way we socialize, to how we entertain, learn, and express ourselves. It is also being used by an increasingly wide range of individuals, with diverse abilities, interests and tasks. This panel will share their insight into this interplay between technology and the individual. They will discuss several aspects, including the impact of technology on flow, how technology can meet the needs of its users and how augmented and virtual reality technologies facilitate creative expression while also considering the dangers of such experiences.
