With the fast introduction of technology in the lives of young people, we are utilising a variety of technological devise in the learning environment. IPads, Smart Screens, iPhones, power points, great hey? They have their place.
Though interestingly in this techno age of development, anxiety disorders are on the increase. With 2 million people affected by anxiety every year, we know our young people are heading down the statistical road of experiencing anxiety disorders themselves, and technology plays apart in this.
But does technology aid anxiety, or enhance anxiety recovery? Are we as teachers losing touch of the kinaesthetic methods of teaching, and of life, so important to a learner’s mental wellbeing?
This session will explore:
• The increased presentation of anxiety disorders and the impact upon learners.
• Devices and technologically based programs that can assist or enhance anxiety recovery.
• Recovery based Models of learning -Strategies to assist students to learn kinaesthetically, and enhance mental wellbeing, balancing the aid of technological devises.
