Balanced Use of  Technology

 Cell phones and computers have revolutionized the way we communicate. They can be so compelling to the point of being an addictive compulsion. 

Prudent use of technology is a must for optimum brain health and salient learning. I teach disciplined mindful use of tech tools. I also assist families to mitigate issues regarding healthy and appropriate usage of technology.

In this time of adapting from the effects of Covid-19 isolation, I am aware of the challenges of remote learning. I strive to create a lively, informative and engaging learning session as well as providing family support.
