Tots, Tweens, Teens and Screens: Supporting Healthy Child Development in a Screenwise Way
A Presentation for Schools & Parents
A presentation to explore how screen technology supports and interferes in child development and what we can do to help our children thrive in a digitally-focused world.
We will explore how our brains and their development reveal a clear picture about the appropriate timing for screen use. This allows our children to develop their full potential and ensures they will be competent citizens of the world.
We will end with a discussion on forming healthy tech habits for you and your children.
Runtime: 1 hour 9 minutes.
