Schools are under pressure to introduce corporate-branded, screen-based technology into their classrooms, and students are paying the price. Veteran teachers Matt Miles and Joe Clement have seen the impact first-hand – and they’ve done something about it. In this webinar, they offer strategies for teachers and parents to thoughtfully steer education away from technological hype and back to what matters: supporting students’ full development.

Technology and Young Children with Nancy Carlsson-Paige

November 2018

In this webinar based on her keynote at our Action Network conference, Dr. Nancy Carlsson-Paige will offer a full exploration of how and why screens interfere with developmental milestones crucial to children’s wellbeing. Using specific, real-life examples, Dr. Carlsson-Paige illustrates the difference between what children “learn” from screens and what they learn through physical, hands-on activities. Dr. Carlsson-Paige’s keynote was one of the most well-received sessions at our conference. Believe us when we say this is a can’t-miss!
