FamTech Vancouver brings together families and tech enthusiasts to discuss the impact and potential of technology in our lives.
Screens are ever present in many households. Changes in our engagement with devices may have some big implications, particularly for children. We share concerns about screen time, privacy, distraction, emotional well-being and online safety.
We are a community of parents, entrepreneurs, engineers, educators, and creators. You'll have the opportunity to exchange ideas with thought leaders across disciplines with the common goal of making technology a more positive force in the lives of families.
Together we want to explore topics such as: • Ethics and privacy in technology design • Fostering intergenerational connection through technology • Managing quality screen time and media use • How to build digital literacy and empathy for kids • Emerging trends in the kids digital ecosystem • Unpacking research on teens, screens and mental health • And much more!
Sean Herman is the CEO of Kinzoo, a kid-tech startup based in Vancouver, BC. His first book "Screen Captured: Helping Families Explore the Digital World in the Age of Manipulation" recently debuted at #1 in the parenting category on Amazon.
Join us to celebrate the launch and discuss the state of technology for our children!
Refreshments and food will be provided.
