NBC Left Field explores the far-reaching implications of technology on society and the human mind.
In this video, the second in their series, they look inside the Rudolf Steiner School in New York City to examine the benefits of Waldorf education and specifically the benefits of a learning environment that focuses on face-to-face interaction and emphasizes a healthy relationship with technology.
They also speak with Aza Raskin, founding member of Mozilla Labs and the inventor of the infinite scroll, who has come to question his role in shaping technology’s addictive qualities.
He says, “It’s really telling that the top silicon valley executives don’t let their kids use the technology they create. There are only two industries that call their customers 'users' -- one is technology companies and the other is drug dealers.”
