For those who missed out last year on the opportunity to find out what apps can be effective in supporting your children, Michael Crisci will be again discussing some of these in his Not all APPS are Bad talk.
With the advent of electronic devices in homes, schools and even in therapy, electronic screen time has become commonplace. As such, it is important to embrace technology, but making sure it is safe, controlled and supported. ‘Not all Apps are bad’ is part of OTFC’s lecture series and will cover topics such as:
· the pros and cons of screen time
· managing tablet and phone use
· resources for app reviews
· video modelling
and will include an interactive display of suggested apps and new tablet technologies. Parents and teachers will also be provided with a list of apps that can be used at home and in class, with both functional and educational purposes. There will be the opportunity for discussion and interaction, so please feel free to bring along your tablet devices* and ideas to share, to get the most from the talk.
While the discussion will cover a number of topics from last year, there will be some new ideas, resources and points of discussion.
