Young people and gaming

April 03, 2020

Time: 15:00-16:00hrs

Cost: Member £50 / Non-member £100


Designed for staff, governors and parents, this workshop focuses on "the good, the bad", and the misunderstood in the world of young people and gaming. What are the main issues, should we be worried about gaming habits and dangers of addiction and what is the positive news for educators, including how gaming technology is shaping the future? The training aims to train pastoral staff, teachers and tutors at all levels of knowledge on delivering effective education as part of a PSHE curriculum looking at risk. With the current crisis affecting student time online, it is vital to identify and address the screen habits of different ages to look at a balanced and appropriate message, making this a vital piece of training!

“A wonderful course with fantastic resources and engaging trainer.”
