Beginning Teacher Conference
September 20, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm$85
Dr Kristy will deliver her keynote address Teaching the iGen at the Beginning Teacher Conference.
In this practical keynote address Dr Kristy arms educators with information and strategies about:
// How much time children are spending online and what they’re actually doing online (as it shapes their learning preferences in the classroom) and what aspects of childhood are being displaced;
// The ways in which technology is impacting children’s relationships, language, sleep, play, movement, nutrition and executive function skills (impulse control and working memory) and what we can do at school to compensate;
// Why the iGen’s attention spans are changing and simple ideas to maximise and maintain their attention in the classroom;
// Simple ways that we can leverage educational technologies in the classroom to meet the iGen’s preference for visual information, need for instant gratification and desire to collaborate;
// Healthy media habits (to protect students’ sleep habits, vision, hearing, posture and attention spans).; and
// Solutions to your ‘digital dilemmas’. There will be opportunity to ask Dr Kristy your pressing questions and concerns about children’s technology habits.
