The majority of people now use technology to help them keep track of appointments, get from point A to point B, and stay socially and professionally connected.

Yet, we're constantly questioning if this is truly a useful 'crutch,' or if we're merely dampening our own ability to think and remember.

In Brain Gain, tech and education expert Marc Prensky shows that both have strengths -our own cognitive function for sense-making and complex reasoning; technology for the ability to store and process large amounts of data.

But how can we combine the strengths of each for maximum benefit?

Drawing on the latest neuroscience and his own extensive research with cutting-edge experts in mind-machine combination, Prensky shows readers how smart people are now learning to improve our thinking power by using technology wisely, without losing our humanity.
