What am I feeling when I’m touching my smartphone? How many times a day do I touch it without performing any further actions or operations? Would a friend from my social network come fix my leaking heating at midnight? What am I trying to escape from when I spend more time on the Internet than I had intended to? When was the last time I snapped at a friend or relative when they tried to drag me away from the screen? Is a walk through Petrzalka safer than browsing the internet? What is electronic babysitting? Why do we feel safe when we’re connected with other people, but why are social networks only a partial illusion of security? What is going on in my brain when I’m becoming addicted? How can we tell someone is becoming addicted? Who took away creative boredom?

Like with fire and the printing press, we are again trying to come to terms with an amazing invention that can be a good servant but a bad master. The internet is in our pockets, day-night at our disposal. Who is addicted to whom?

These were some of the questions we discussed with our school psychologist Zuzana Vasičákova Očenášova. We are sorry to say we have no video recording of the WICK as we had some technical difficulties.
