Scene #4  Humans can't really multitask (The Titanic!)  (SV01974)

Another concern that many are raising, with regard to media and technology, is the subject of multitasking.    Dr. Walsh: "Kids are absolutely convinced that they can multitask. Young kids tell me, 'You may not be able to multitask, Dr. Walsh, because you're an old guy, but we can do it because we've been raised with it.' "    Untrue. Also, the sinking of the Titanic is discussed as an example of consequences versus the benefits of technology.
