Today’s children are born into a world that thrives on technology. Technology’s rapid rise has changed the world in just a few decades by penetrating all aspects of daily living from the way we learn and communicate, to how we work.

This poses a number of questions around the best way to parent - how much technology should my child be exposed to? How can I use technology to help my child learn and grow? What will my child’s future be like as the workplace evolves?

The British Council, the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities, is proud to present its first ever early childhood seminar, Raising the Future: The Tech Generation, which will answer these questions and more.

Bringing together a panel of technology and education industry leaders, the seminar will offer you an insightful and holistic view of the part that technology plays in your child’s world, and how to make the best of it. Get the opportunity to ask for advice from early childhood experts and gain practical tips that you can use at home for the benefit of your child’s future.

This event is suitable for parents with children aged 10 years and below.


  • Dr Jiow Hee Jhee, Assistant Professor of Health and Social Sciences, Singapore Institute of Technology: How can parents get the best out of children's usage of technology?
  • Jay Thompson, Director of Educational Technology and Innovation, Dulwich College Singapore: How has technology transformed children's education?
  • Abhilash Murthy, Founder of Bus Uncle - one of Singapore's pioneer AI chatbot companies: What skills should today's children build in order to flourish in a tech-driven world?
