Clint Small Middle School-Tech Generation
September 10 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am
Dr. Brooks is presenting at Clint Small Middle School on Tech Generation: Raising Balanced Kids in a Hyper-Connected World. Our lives are becoming increasingly enmeshed with technology. While there are certainly many benefits of technology, its seductive lure has our children (and us!) disconnecting from what is most important in life – the people and world around us. To be both successful and happy in life, it is imperative that we learn to help our children navigate these often treacherous waters. During this presentation, we will learn why technologies, including texts and social media, hold such a grip on us. We’ll take a close look at its effects on our brains and discuss strategies to help you and your family use technology in a more balanced way. The stakes are high and these challenges are not going to get any easier with the passage of time! Learning these strategies now will enable you to help your children be more successful in school and stay connected in deeper, more meaningful relationships. Dr. Brooks’ book, Tech Generation: Raising Balanced Kids in a Hyper-Connected World was published by Oxford University Press in August 2018.
