How is your Phone Changing you?

On 17th July 2021, the Youth Services Committee conducted a motivational session for the children of Rotary Bangalore Vidyalaya.
The programme was well attended by students, parents and Rotarians alike.
Our speaker, Mr. Girish Panicker, a corporate trainer and founder of Shaping Tree and Scooppin – a tech training
platform, handled the event beautifully. He kept the children engaged with riveting stories and making them aware of the ill effects of mobile addiction and overuse.
Mr. Panicker explained that cell phone usage has both positive and negative effects. Some of the positives are that
we gain knowledge, connection, news, information and entertainment with mobile phones. The negatives and risks
are addiction, eye strain, insomnia, restlessness and cyber crimes.
The children and parents had a lot of questions about how to limit usage of mobiles by the school children and on how to keep them engaged.
The event paved the way for more such events at Rotary Bangalore Vidyalaya in the future.
