Join Mohamed Alansari for Is Technology Terminating Relationships At School?
Are devices expanding children’s horizons or are they a bad substitute for human connection?
In an increasingly digital and anonymous world, with technology transforming how we act, react, and interact, it’s uncertain whether human relationships are still important to learning.
Often people talk about the value of positive human relationships as an integral part of any learning environment. Indeed, you won’t find any studies debating otherwise.
But how do we know which relationships are positive and supportive? How can kids, young adults and adults alike tell that someone cares about their success and wellbeing?
Come along to hear Mohamed’s revelations from his research on relationships, aspirations and success. Some of his insights won’t be what you expect.
