SCREENAGERS: GROWING UP IN THE DIGITAL AGE

Description

Western School Corporation would like to invite you to a free public viewing of the documentary SCREENAGERS: Growing Up in The Digital Age.  The documentary will be hosted on Thursday, February 27th, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. in the Western School Corporation’s Neuhauser Auditorium.   


SCREENAGERS is about the impact of the digital age on children and how to help them minimize harmful effects and find balance. After seeing the film, people have shared that they feel more confident and better equipped to establish balance around screen time.

SCREENAGERS: Growing Up in The Digital Age has been screened more than 8,000 times to 4 million people in more than 70 countries around the world. With multiple screenings happening daily in communities across the globe,  SCREENAGERS is the first feature documentary to explore the impact of screen technology on kids and offer parents and families proven solutions that work. What started out as a personal story for one has grown into a national movement, helping millions of teens and their families navigate growing up in a world with instant access to screens.

Interwoven into these stories, are cutting edge science and insights from thought leaders Peggy Orenstein, Sherry Turkle, Simon Sinek, as well as leading brain scientists who present evidence on the real changes in the brain when kids are on screens. SCREENAGERS goes far beyond exposing the risks of screen time, it reveals multiple approaches on how parents and educators can work with kids to help them achieve a healthy amount of screen time.
