“Your Choice” parlor: February 2, 2017:
During this class parlor, we were able to choose a chapter to discuss from Sherry Turkle’s Reclaiming Conversation. The topic of conversation that drew my attention was the “Work” chapter. Specifically, discussion around the concept of multitasking took off during this parlor. Immediately, my mind was drawn to the health field. I considered the amount of work that doctors take on every day and how technology will change how they manage all of the patients, procedures, charts, and other responsibilities. This class parlor led me to make the first connection between the inquiry project and my own major interest in health and therefore, was ultimately what kindled my interest in my overall guiding question.
