Technology use, overuse and misuse had spawned a range of cognitive and social issues which are regularly discussed in the media and education circles. While the EduTech evangelists spruik digital learning for 21st Century skill development, parents and carers have difficulties balancing their children’s tech usage for learning and leisure. As psychologists in schools we’re in a unique position to both prevent and treat “digital disorders”. This seminar will explore contempory issues around the impacts of technology use and practical ideas and resources to promote “Digital Nutrition”, including how to evaluate and appraise “health apps”.
