The internet is evolving and technology is ever faster and smarter, which means – whether we like it or not – young people can be continuously connected online. While there are many well-reported downsides to life online, the reality is that there is also an upside to technology. In this presentation, the founder of SchoolTV and child and adolescent psychologist Dr Michael Carr-Gregg will explore how technology – including smartphone apps, web-based programmes and biometric devices – can be used to promote student (and parent) wellbeing and enhance our lives.
