Tuesday, 2.23.16 from 9:30 – 11:00 a.m. in Rowell Hall

Come join us as Dr. Bozeday discusses brain development in preschoolers and young children and how technology impacts learning. She will review a few of the negative aspects of technology and how much is too much. Dr. Bozeday will highlight activities that stimulate a positive growth in executive function skills for preschoolers and young children.

Some of the questions she will answer are:

  • iPhones, iPads, remotes, video games…when is this all too much?
  • What are the negative aspects of technology? Social isolation, creativity is lost, kids cannot play alone.
  • What does technology do to our brain?
  • What are the upsides to technology?
  • What technology is appropriate for different age groups?
