The modern world is filled with new devices, tools, and information platforms. What was unimaginable a few years ago has become integrated into our daily lives, moving rapidly from luxury to indispensable. At the same time, we are seeing drastic increases in stress, anxiety and depressive disorders, which are often assumed to be related to the use of tech and social media.
• Understand the impact of technological devices and social media platforms on cognition, learning, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness.
• Develop strategies and school policies to minimize the negative impact of these innovations.
• Teach students how to make informed decisions about their use of tech and social media.
• Recognize cyberbullying and develop appropriate interventions.
All families, interested community members, are encouraged to attend this program.
Certificates of Attendance (for PDPs) and Contact Hours for nurses and Braintree staff/faculty will be provided for this event.
