Technology designers are changing the way cognitive processes work in people who use the technologies they design: from perception to memory, attention, learning, communication, and social cognition. In fact, we may be seeing the beginnings of one of the largest shifts in cognition brought about by technology, perhaps even bigger than the changes brought by handwriting and mathematical notation.

Dr. John Spencer (Psychology, CLAS) will  talk about a recent National Science Foundation workshop of the same title. The workshop, held October 2-3 in Washington, DC, brings together leading theorists and practitioners of "civic science" to refine and enrich this concept through the lens of civic agency. Civic agency highlights the political (not partisan) nature of science - science as a powerful source of knowledge for action in the world that negotiates a shared democratic way of life.
