A Parent Education Speaker Event
Technology and the Developing Brain:
How is Your Child Being Affected
Innovation in technology is not only changing the way we live and communicate,
it appears to be altering how our brains function. As a result of this high-tech stimulation, we are witnessing a new form of the generation gap – a brain gap dividing younger digital natives, immersed in the technology early in life, from older digital immigrants, who adapt to the new technology more reluctantly. This talk will describe how this phenomenon affects contemporary parenting, and how we can best support our children's brain development in this new reality.
Tuesday, November 5th
