The Effect of Technology on the Developing Brain


Over the last few years, our society has experienced a rather fast move into the digital age. The use of technology is widespread in the United States today with nine out of ten people having access to the internet on a variety of devices. What part should technology play in the lives of young children? And how does exposure to technology influence the developing brain?

In this workshop we will consider:

  • The role of technology in the lives of young children
  • How technology effects the developing brain
  • How to support young children to take advantage of technology, while still ensuring healthy development
  • Tools that can be utilized to counteract some possible negative impacts of exposure to technology
