Find out how technology influences your preschooler, and how you can help them flourish in a tech-driven world at the British Council’s early childhood seminar, Raising the Future: The Tech Generation.
Technology has affected every aspect of our lives, from how our brains develop and how we communicate with each other, to how our education systems, careers and workplaces are run, and continues to develop, shift and change at an incredibly fast rate. As parents, it’s important to know what this means for your little ones, who are growing up as digital natives.
This poses a number of questions around the best way to parent – how much technology should my child be exposed to? How can I use technology to help my child learn and grow? What will my child’s future be like as the workplace evolves?
You’ll find the answers to these and many other questions at the British Council’s upcoming seminar, Raising the Future: The Tech Generation.
Bringing together a panel of technology and education industry leaders, the seminar will offer you an insightful and holistic view of the part that technology plays in your child’s world, and how to make the best of it. Get the opportunity to ask for advice from early childhood experts and gain practical tips that you can use at home for the benefit of your child’s future.
