Over 5 sessions, participants will learn the current research on the impact living in a digital world has on youth. What are the harms? What are the benefits? How do we maximize the positive while mitigating the challenges for our students as well as ourselves. Some of the session topics focus on the impact of social media on mental health, mindfulness as a strategy for digital wellbeing, the power of youth advocacy, and digital wellness practices to implement with yourself, students and families. The series will be progressive with opportunities to take home practices to try in between sessions.
This first webinar in the series will focus on the overview of The Attention Economy and it's impact on youth including learning, productivity, and focus.
