Join the attendees of a Technology Anonymous meeting on a buzzing ride through their lives as they delve into their daily technological addictions.
Acclaimed theatre-in-education company, Squid Stamp, return to Queensland with their dynamic, high-energy, comedic sketch show that explores how the i-Things and Whatsagrams of the 21st century are used, and sometimes abused, in everyday life.
The Technology Show helps students get social media savvy whilst giggling about their gadgets and questioning their tech habits, contributing to their social and emotional learning by delivering important information about cyber safety, digital citizenship and modern technologies. Plus, it’s in 3D!
Through presentation and open discussion, the show gives students the opportunity to consider the use and impact of technology on equity, and personal and social values, and helps them to make informed and ethical decisions about the role, impact and use of technologies.
Winner of the 2013 Melbourne Fringe Festival Best Kids Show Award.
