  • Equal Classroom: Life-Changing Thinking About Gender
    Equal Classroom: Life-Changing Thinking About Gender
    How much thinking have you done about gender?

    What does it feel like to be gay, trans or non-binary at school?

    How unbiased, safe and inclusive are our teachers, our schools and our systems, and what can we do about it?

    The time is ripe for a re-think, and the issues are pressing. Our pupils are grappling with challenges around gender and sexuality, and they need our well-informed support. Providing evidence, prompts and the space to explore the implications, restrictions and constructs of gender, this book is here to help every teacher reflect on issues around gender roles and expectations in their class.

    In this challenging and potent book, experts, academics and campaigners join forces to contribute important perspectives to complement Rycroft-Smith's own accessible and often provocative explanations of many facets of gender and sexuality, including media, literature, toys, clothing, sexism, expectations, sexuality, gender roles, harassment and consent. Humour and anecdotes are thoughtfully intertwined with fascinating insights into biological and cultural perspectives and societal norms, highlighting why it's so vital to teach pupils about gender issues, as well as modelling consent, good quality relationships and tolerance to children at all ages and stages of their school career.

    Providing clear, practical policy recommendations in an accessible and engaging way, The Equal Classroom is an essential read for any teacher or education professional who wants to ensure their school is a place where all pupils feel truly welcome and able to flourish, comfortable and safe in their emerging identities.

  • Glow Kids How Screen Addiction is Hijacking Our Kids and How to Break the Trance
    Glow Kids How Screen Addiction is Hijacking Our Kids and How to Break the Trance
    We've all seen them: kids hypnotically staring at glowing screens in restaurants, in playgrounds and in friends' houses and the numbers are growing. Like a virtual scourge, the illuminated glowing faces - the Glow Kids - are multiplying. But at what cost? Is this just a harmless indulgence or fad like some sort of digital hula-hoop? Some say that glowing screens might even be good for kids - a form of interactive educational tool. Don't believe it. In Glow Kids, Dr. Nicholas Kardaras will examine how technology - more specifically, age inappropriate screen tech, with all of its glowing ubiquity has profoundly affected the brains of an entire generation. Brain imaging research is showing that stimulating glowing screens are as dopaminergic (dopamine activating) to the brain's pleasure center as sex. And a growing mountain of clinical research correlates screen tech with disorders like ADHD, addiction, anxiety, depression, increased aggression, and even psychosis. Most shocking of all, recent brain imaging studies conclusively show that excessive screen exposure can neurologically damage a young person's developing brain in the same way that cocaine addiction can.
    Kardaras will dive into the sociological, psychological, cultural, and economic factors involved in the global tech epidemic with one major goal: to explore the effect all of our wonderful shiny new technology is having on kids.
