Technology and Brains: The Good, the Bad, the Unknown
Our brains become what our brains do. What does that mean for our brains – and the brains of our children and students – in an era of 24/7 digital technology? This webinar will explore what brain research is telling us about the best and worst aspects of video games, cell phones and Internet search. We will discuss the impact of technologies and how that impact changes at different stages of development. We will discuss how to leverage the positive aspects of technology and the ways that some of the negative aspects can be mitigated by protective factors in the environment.
The agenda for this web conference:
• What the Science Says about the Good and the Bad
• Technology’s Impact at Different Stages of Child Development
• Principles for Using Technology Effectively and Responsibly
