Memory is more than remembering. Beyond cognitive processes that reside within the confines of internal memory storage exists several extramnemonic processes that produce behavior that we typically understand as within the realm of memory. The proliferation of immersive computing, pervasive computing, ubiquitous computing, and ambient intelligence has brought attention to a myriad of new questions related to the dynamics of memory under the influence of technology, particularly for the shifting interplay between internal and external memory. Control of memory is particularly important in consideration of the current and future potential for offloading aspects of memory onto systems in contexts of novel technology use. If an individual can accurately monitor memory performance, she can make key decisions that will service her intellectual and behavior goals, such as how to recall information and when to terminate practice. In this presentation, I will discuss cognitive offloading in the context of various media experiences. I will also discuss how the ability to rely on external search may increase performance, but may also potentially distort how we understand our own memory and knowledge.
