Event description

Description

Join us for an evening with Dr. Catherine Steiner Adair, psychologist and author of The Big Disconnect. As the focus of family has turned to the glow of the screen, children constantly texting their friends and parents working online around the clock, everyday family life is undergoing a massive transformation. At the same time, schools are increasingly using technology as a primary tool for learning and older students are spending more time on screens that on any other activity (including sleep) and tech has changed the boundaries between students, parents and teachers. Childhood, family life and education have rapidly changed in thrilling ways and in challenging ways.

This talk will challenge us to push the pause button and look at some of the psychological fallout of our fast-paced adaptation to tech, and refresh our thinking about how to raise confident, healthy and savvy children in the digital age.

FAQs

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Limited parking is available at this event. Space is available on the tarmac upon entry from Howland Ave or in our underground garage with access from Albany Ave as you travel south from Wells St. Once campus parking is full, we will direct guests to local parking and Green P locations close by. As part of our commitment to be good neighbours, we ask that all guests refrain from parking on neighbourhood streets for any school event. Alternatively, please consider other means of travel, such as the TTC or carpooling.
