About The Webinar

Screen Addiction: Assessing the Impact and How to Develop Healthy Habits | Primary

Webinar Duration: 1 hour 28 minutes (approx.)

This webinar will provide school leaders and teaching staff with practical guidance and advice on how to develop strategies in the classroom and at home which support children and young people to manage their screen time and develop healthy screen habits.

In 2019, the World Health Organisation (WHO) issued guidelines stating that children must have reduced screen time as part of growing up healthy. Too much screen time can negatively impact physical and psychological wellbeing, including increased risk of obesity from lack of exercise and heightened anxiety from social media activities.

In this webinar Zandri Byleveldt, occupational therapist, performance coach, learning support specialist and NBI consultant, discusses the impact of technological evolution over time, the rise of ‘screen culture’ and what steps schools can take to help reduce the risks associated with and development of screen addiction.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding what screen culture is and how it has evolved overtime to become a prevalent part of our day to day lives.

  • Recognising the impact screen culture is having on children and young people (and adults), with evidence of relevant research and studies into these effects.

  • Identifying the practical ways at school to support children and young people moving forward to adopt a healthier attitude towards screen time in the classroom.

  • Exploring a range of practical activities at home to support children and young people to develop healthy attitudes and behaviours towards screen time.

  • Understanding specific activities that can be used to regulate the nervous system in children and young people and manage their arousal levels.
