Mind Your Money: Technology & Spending
Online Workshop / Webinar
When you add up all the time we spend on our computers/laptops, tablets, televisions and phones, Canadians spend an average of 11 hours a day on our screens. Have you ever wondered what is happening behind the scenes when we use these various devices? Can the things we view on any or all of these screens change our purchasing behavioural patterns?
The Introduction to the Technology & Spending, webinar/workshop is the second webinar in our 3-part Mind your Money, webinar series and it is a continuation of our conversation from the, Mind your Money: Psychology of Spending, webinar.
Participants will learn about how marketers use our online behaviour to increase and influence our spending and learn strategies on how we can counter that.
Join us for this Mind Your Money: An Introduction to Technology and Spending, workshop/webinar to learn some valuable information about how marketers use your online behaviour and information to influence the way you think and feel. In the session, participants will learn:
- The basics about machine learning algorithms
- How data gathered by your online use can influence you to spend more
- About the impacts of technology on your life
- The risks of excessive technology and social media use
- How to determine what is a realistic expectation so that you don’t feel the need to keep up with the Joneses’
- Tangible strategies on what you can do to limit your screen time, increase your mental well-being, and decrease your spending!
We live in a time where our devices can be seen as extensions of our respective selves. It’s worth acknowledging that the things you directly and indirectly consume online can impact your emotional state and the financial aspects of your life. Being conscious of your online behaviour can allow you to make informed choices about how you can use technology to your advantage instead of letting technology consume your life.
This interactive and fun workshop and we take a “grab and go” approach – grab an idea or two and go try it. All participants will walk away with ideas, resources, and the full curriculum upon request.
