Delve into the real science
behind screen time, age
recommendations and
good habits for mobile
phone use.
We are thrilled to be welcoming Professor Pete Etchells to our screens for an online Q&A session with two of our Lower Sixth students at 7pm on Wednesday 26 June. The event is open to all St Helen and St Katharine parents, along with parents from OX14 schools and parents of Year 5 students and above at our local prep and primary schools. Pete Etchells is a professor of psychology and science communication at Bath Spa University, author and science writer for New Scientist, Science Focus, The Guardian, The New York Times, The Telegraph and WIRED, amongst others, and consultant for BBC’s Horizon. His research focuses on our relationships with digital technology and his most recent book, Unlocked, looks at how and why we’ve got the debate around screentime wrong.
Join us as Professor Pete Etchells shares his knowledge and toolkits as he addresses questions such as:
  • What is the research saying about how much screen time is ok and at what age?
  • How do we develop the best family habits around screen time?
  • When should young people get smartphones and social media?
  • How do we make sure young people are technologically literate?
If you would like to join us, please register via this link. If you have questions that you would like Professor Pete Etchells to answer, please submit them via the talk registration page by Wednesday 12 June.
