Event description
Rethinking Devices in Schools: what we now know and how to manage better

About this Event

In the past 10 years there has been a dramatic increase in the use of technology in schools. The common reason given: it transforms the classroom and enhances learning. However, the research doesn’t support this notion. Modern technology such as smart phones, smart boards, tablets and laptops are affecting the way we think and how our brains develop. They are making us more stressed, anxious, depressed, and more likely to suffer from addiction. Australia is currently leading the way when it comes to technology in schools while outcomes in literacy, maths and science are falling. On the other hand, Silicon Valley executives are sending their kids to schools with limited or no technology. It is time for us to rethink our use of technology in schools.

In an informative and challenging 3 hour workshop Mark will focus on:

-Current beliefs about technology in schools

-What the research shows us is actually happening

-Neuroscience of learning and why devices are sub-optimal

-Neuroscience of addiction and why device overuse is dangerous

-New positive ways forward with technology in schools

Mark has spent many years researching and teaching how the human brain learns, adapts, and evolves. He is excited to share this knowledge and experience with other educators. He believes that in this time of rapid change, we need to enable and inspire the next generation to do great things.

All participants get access to an online discussion and advice group for 12 months. They have access to courses, webinars, videos and regular live chat groups to continue their learning. Dr Mark will respond to queries and post new ideas and resources on a regular basis.
