    Our final book of the spring series is Remembering and Forgetting in the Age of Technology: Teaching, Learning, and the Science of Memory in a Wired World by Michelle D. Miller.

    Human minds are made of memories, and today, those memories have competition. Biological memory capacities are being supplanted, or at least supplemented, by digital ones, as we rely on recording—phone cameras, digital video, speech-to-text—to capture the information we’ll need in the future and then rely on those stored recordings to know what happened in the past. Search engines have taken over traditional reference materials and the knowledge base that used to be encoded in our brains. Google remembers, so we don’t have to. And when we don’t have to, we no longer can. Or can we?

    Remembering and Forgetting in the Age of Technology offers concise, nontechnical explanations of major principles of memory and attention—concepts that all teachers should know and that can inform how technology is used in their classes. Teachers will come away with a new appreciation of the importance of memory for learning, valuable ideas for handling and discussing technology with their students, and an understanding of how memory is changing in our technology-saturated world.
