Exploring the Effect of Digital Devices on How the Brain Learns
Join us for an intimate workshop with Barbara Allen Lyall, Ph.D., an education expert on understanding the learning process of the brain and the effect that technology has on the learning process can help us make better choices for our own health as well as that of our children. We learn every day of our lives, but what is the process? And exactly how are our digital devices influencing our brain development? This interactive workshop engages participants in the use of various learning pathways and looks at the research behind why learners of varying ages access different pathways at different times.
