Event description

Description

Apple founder Steve Jobs did not allow his kids to use iPads, and top Silicon Valley executives send their kids to a low-tech school.

Should you allow your children to use technology, and how much tech is too much?

Mums and dads are invited to this insightful and interactive evening lecture by Dr Anastasia Dedyukhina, an expert in tech life balance. Anastasia is a coach, TEDx speaker, Huffington Post blogger and author of Homo Distractus. She got rid of her smartphone together with her senior international career in digital marketing, when she realized how dependent she became on the gadget. She eventually set up Consciously Digital, a consultancy that helps people have a healthier relationship with tech.

In an easy an entertaining way Anastasia will explain, how tech is changing our brains, ability to take decisions and create. She will give insights into what makes our gadgets so addictive. Quoting the latest neuroscience research, Anastasia will give practical tips on how you can manage your kids' screentime, so that your child grows up healthy, smart and creative.

Anastasia is joining forces with Isabelle, co-founder of Kinfo, an online recommendations community that helps parents choose meaningful activities for their kids, which will offer a prize to one of the attentive participants. Kinfo has been developed by parents who were fed up of their kids' screen bingeing and realised the power of the parents community to share what works for their kids.

Doors open at 7.00pm, and the lecture will start at 7.30pm sharp. We will have time for Q&A.

The venue is 2 minutes walk from Paddington station.

Tickets on Eventbrite: 15 GBP + platform booking fee. Tickets at the door: 20 GBP (not guaranteed, subject to availability)
