Practical Guidelines for Technology Use for Children (Learning & Neurobehaviour)
Technology affects children and young people physically, mentally, emotionally and socially. In the last decade there has been much discussion in the literature around the pros and cons of social media and the benefits of mobile technologies for engaging students in learning. However, there has been less mention of the physical, cognitive and emotional effects of these technologies on children and young people. This presentation will describe how microwave radiation (RF-EMR) emitted from devices affects the brains and minds of young people as they sit in school or at home online. Practical methods for reducing harm while still getting the benefits from technology will be presented.
