There are concerns the attention spans of people have been negatively impacted by technology.

Dr Hannah Kirk, Developmental Psychologist from Monash University, told Tom Elliott there was little doubt the advancement of phones, tablets, computers and television had made it more difficult for people to focus.

“I think lots of us are experiencing that, especially if you’re working from home,” she said.

She said it impacted on productivity.

“We are much better if we focus on one task at a time,” she said.
