About the Workshop: We treat the increasing dominance of mobile technology in our world as something inevitable (i.e. that this is the way society is going, and we must simply adopt). But is it? And even if it is, have we thought critically about the effects that this technology is having on our souls, our psyches, our health, our families, and our communities? This interactive workshop seeks to explore these issues on the basis of both guidance from the Islamic tradition of akhlaq and tarbiyah and modern research in psychology and behavioral health. The workshop will also explore “best practices” and suggested solutions for Muslim parents seeking to harness the benefits of these technologies for their children in a way that is compatible with an Islamic lifestyle and Islamic ethics.
