Self-Regulation

150 150 admin

Write a 3–4-page assessment in which you use examples and research findings to explain the connections between technology and self-regulation.

The more self-knowledge and self-awareness we have, the more intentional we can be about our behavioral choices and the more we can resolve conflicts between ourselves and the social world.
