If you are a parent or work with youth, then you’ve most likely wished that you knew more about technology and social media. Please join us for an evening featuring: Michael Nerney, world known speaker. Michael will explore commonly used apps, impacts on the developing brain, cyberbullying how to monitor tech time and set reasonable boundaries.
Research is just beginning to focus on measurable changes generated in the brain from digital technology; there is already considerable data on the impact on social behaviors, relationships, and self-esteem. How does technology increase student risk behaviors, like substance misuse? What role can adults play as we watch the growth of negative apps like Yik Yak and the potentially destructive capacity of Twitter? In this presentation, participants will hear an update on social media, and some strategies for effective discussions with adolescents who are immersed in them.
This event is co-sponsored with Craftsbury Academy, and is open to all! Light refreshments provided.
