Try Think: About Disconnecting – The Transition from Physical to Digital

March 17 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

In partnership with the Hawaiʻi State Public Library System (HSPLS), we will be hosting a three-part series of Try Think conversations around the theme of transition, exploring the complexities in the shift from physical to digital spaces, maintaining intergenerational connections, and gender identity.

  • What are different ways we experience transition?
  • What does it mean to be in transition?
  • How do others’ transitions impact our own lived experiences?

We invite you to come and share a thought or question you would like to discuss to connect with others in your community.

 

Try Think: About Disconnecting – The Transition from Physical to Digital  |  (Conversation 1 of 3)

Mar 17, 2021, 4:30-6:30 pm HST via Zoom

Register in advance for this meeting: t.ly/wrRf

 

From staff meetings to family dinners to doctor appointments, virtual meeting spaces like Zoom, Webex and Teams have become everyday places for us to gather and converse. In this transition from a more physical to digital landscape, the ability to access people and places we otherwise wouldn’t be able to has increased for many.  What have we learned and how have we changed in this moment of transition?

 

  • Has this new normal of engagement changed the way we interact for the better?
  • Are we connected more now than before?
  • Moving forward, how can we best balance the physical and digital without replacing either?
  • As our community, our world, has transitioned from mostly in-person to on a screen, what has been lost?  What has been gained?
  • What new challenges does this transition from physical to a mostly virtual world create?
