Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Our children are spending more time on smartphones, tablets, and computers. Teachers and parents are growing increasingly concerned about how all this "screen time" will effect our children's lives. We will explore how to encourage preschoolers to practice self-control, and unplug from unhealthy distractions and plug into good ones! 

At the end of this session the participant will be able to: 
  • Learn new strategies to encourage and promote healthy screentime use
  • Learn how a child's brain development is impacted by technology ( the good and bad)
