Limited Capacity seats available

Since the late 1970s, children have lost 12 hours a week of free time, including a 50% drop in outdoor free play! Where will we be in the next decade with the blurring boundaries between humanity and technology? Are smartphones destroying a generation or enabling them to be digital citizens? In this keynote address Dr. McRae will explore some of the key trends that are actively (re)shaping Canadian society and open up a conversation about achieving a fine balance in a digitally saturated world.  He will also share key findings of the world’s largest research study on technology, health and learning – Growing Up Digital (GUD) Alberta - that is being conducted in partnership with Harvard Medical School and Boston Children’s Hospital.
