Technology, Screen Time & Your Child

As a society, we have never before experienced a revolution as swift and all encompassing as the Technology Revolution. The result is we are growing up children in a time when their brains and worlds are being changed and shaped by forces we could not have imagined even 10 years ago. Facebook didn't exist a decade ago. Twitter and Instagram are a foreign language to many adults. And actual play in the real world is often replaced by screen time, with the average Canadian child being exposed to approximately 7.5 hours of "entertainment technology" per day. The challenge is that this has happened so quickly, we have not culturally had an opportunity to adjust our practices and build in safeguards and check-points to ensure that this revolution does not harm the influential brains and minds of our growing children. 

 This workshop will focus on:
  • how technology exposure and use might be harming our children
  • how technology might be used to actually benefit the development of our children
  • ideas and guidelines to implement in our children's exposure to and use of technology 
  • how to ultimately protect and nurture our children's well-being in our technology-driven world

About the Speaker:

Alka Burman is a Registered Early Childhood Educator, with a Specialized Degree in Exceptionalities in Human Learning (University of Toronto). As a Literacy and Diversity specialist, she works with families and agencies to enrich children's lives in academia.
