Adults, teens, and children spend more time with their fingers and faces on screens than ever before. Should we be worried? How is is this changing our brains? This session will review the latest neurological research around screen use. Then we will talk about concrete actionable teaching strategies to use in the classroom with students of all ages to build the skills necessary to navigate our digital world successfully. Participants will leave the session able to differentiate between effective uses of technology and pure distraction.
