Abstract

This podcast is the result of an ethnography assignment for Anthropology 103. The group collected data using participant observation, surveys, and individual interviews to test their premise that use of technology in public areas hindered social interaction at Parkland College. Their findings revealed contradictory perceptions about the use of technology. Respondents indicated that they felt they were approachable while using technology, but were also reluctant to approach someone else in the same situation.
