How to Beat Digital Distraction
From Andy Tattersall
In this podcast I’m going to hopefully give you a few tips on how to deal with that modern day problem of information overload and digital distraction. In the academic world it is very easy to get distracted by a multitude of things. From your mobile phone to interruptions by other people, whilst social media and email create a constant stream of content that can take you away from your work. These are all part of a modern academic environment but when you really need to write that paper, prepare those slides or finish that thesis chapter they can become problematic. Like any changes in your lifestyle and working practices, you do need to put in some effort. If you do that I guarantee you will see positive results.
