Title:
Technology-assisted memory
Authors:
Mercer, Tom
Abstract:
Memory plays a crucial role in all aspects of life, yet forgetfulness and memory distortion is common. People are therefore willing to ‘offload’ memories onto external aids, including technology. This chapter explores the ways in which technology can change memory processes, and examines the wider implications of technology-assisted memory. The scientific evidence shows that whilst technology can sometimes damage remembering, there are positive applications too. This chapter reviews the benefits of technological memory aids and shows how they can support remembering within a variety of applied settings. The value of assistive technology for those with memory impairment is also discussed. The chapter concludes by outlining the wider implications of technological memory aids, and summarises the advantages of possessing a technology-assisted memory.
