About This Course
Concerns over information overload have become more prevalent today because of the complexities of the communication systems that are available to us. We are now able to quickly communicate with people from around the world and have access to information 24/7. Information is now freely exchanged at rates never before experienced.
In today’s always-connected world, information overload is a real problem. The term ‘information overload’ was coined in 1970 by Alvin Toffler, a Russian Academic, and is described as the phenomenon where so much information is taken in that it is impossible for our brains to process it all.
The Beginning Of Information Overload
Information overload isn’t something that has only been a problem for a couple of decades; it has been an issue for society for thousands of years. It has been a problem since 1439 when Gutenberg invented the printing press. The printing press brought about the development of new patterns of communication that the world wasn’t ready to experience.
An Increase In Information
Today, information is merely a Google search away, resulting in the rapid rise of information available to us with a simple click of a button. Today, anybody can publish content online, which has resulted in hundreds of articles and blogs, as well as dozens of books being published on any topic. We can now gather information from blogs, chat forums, videos, social media, and other communication channels at any time and from anywhere.
How Information Overload Affects the Brain
As the technological environment continues to change and speed up, the immense burden of information can exceed the limits of our brains. Information overload has given us a glimpse into the environment we must live in daily. To overcome the effects of information overload, we need to understand our capabilities as well as our limitations. Today’s constant flux of information results in us suffering from mental ‘overload’ that can be a detriment to short-term memory retention. The loss of brain inactivity can impair the cerebral processes that allow short-term memories to be converted into long-term memories.
