Here's a sneak peak of the webinar:
Teachers are really concerned that today’s students are finding it harder and harder to pay attention, in the digital age. Attention is constantly diverted as kids have grown accustomed to tap, swipe, and jump in and out of apps with multiple web browsers open at all times.
Attention management is THE most CRITICAL SKILL students MUST develop in their screen-saturated world. (Without it, they’ll get seduced by the screen and their attention will be hijacked).
Many teachers accept that technology is here to stay (and can in fact be a valuable learning tool when used effectively), so digital abstinence is not the answer. In this seminar, Kristy will arm you with practical strategies you can use immediately in your classroom to minimise digital distractions and empower your students to form healthy tech habits so they’re in control of their screens not a slave to them.
This webinar is designed for primary and secondary teachers and allied health professionals working with students aged 4-17 years. Dr Kristy Goodwin, a former teacher, lecturer at Macquarie University and Notre Dame University, author and digital health, learning and wellbeing expert will debunk the myths to deliver the latest research-based facts about students’ waning attention spans.
This 2 hour webinar is designed for both primary and secondary teachers and covers:
// Why it’s so difficult for students to pay attention today (hint- tech has been designed to prey on their psychological vulnerabilities, caters for their three most basic human psychological needs and causes students to experience neurobiological changes)
// How screens are compromising students’ attention spans
// Why attention management is THE most critical 21st century learning skill
// Practical and easy ways to stop screens from hijacking students’ attention spans in the classroom and at home.
This 2-hour webinar has been designed for primary and secondary teachers and allied health professionals working with kids aged 4-17 years. Dr Kristy, a former teacher, author and digital health, learning and wellbeing expert will debunk the myths and arm attendees with research-based information about students’ waning attention spans. Kristy will arm teachers with a wealth of practical strategies that they can immediately implement in their classroom to minimise digital distractions and empower kids to form healthy tech habits (where they’re in control and not a slave to the screen).
Kristy is an accredited professional development provider with NESA, which means NSW teacher attendance at this seminar will count towards 2 hours of registered professional learning. Attendees will receive a certificate of attendance (on completion of a quick quiz that can be accessed after the webinar, either live or via the replay), a video recording of the webinar and a PDF summary. The presentation will go for approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes, followed by the opportunity for participants to ask questions (either via a chat function or by pre-submitting questions on a form before the webinar).
Why professional learning via webinars?
With a webinar, teachers can do PD in their PJs.
As a former teacher, and someone who conducts a significant amount of professional learning with educators across the country, Kristy understands the time and expense associated with attending conferences and workshops during school hours. Organising casual teachers and travel to and from the venue (and the associated costs) can make it tricky. But with a webinar, you get to start and finish accredited professional development in your lounge room, with a cup of your favourite beverage in hand - it couldn’t be easier.
