District News

"Like" screening.

Dear 4J community,

Virtual Film Screening

WHAT: Virtual screening of LIKE

WHEN: February 6-13, 2023

WHERE: Link to follow

WHO: 4J students, families & staff


Eugene School District 4J is pleased to present a virtual screening of the film LIKE. LIKE breaks down why we find social media so irresistible, examines who is controlling whom, and gives viewers the tools to pivot to a more balanced and contented relationship. It features Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, including the co-creator of the ‘LIKE’ button, experts in brain science, and teenagers.

Medical and science experts explain the behavioral changes that come from chemical effects on the brain. But the 49-minute-long LIKE does not leave you with a sense of fear and foreboding.

The core of the documentary is built around the kids and teens interviewed, and the empathy that they build with their audience as they look honestly at their usage and dependence on these tiny devices, consider the good that can come from and be transmitted via social media and rethink the relationship to one where they are much more aware and in balance.

4J families also have the opportunity to watch the film online. Students are encouraged to watch and have conversations with their parents regarding the topics.

LIKE is the third film in 4J’s four-film series presented this school year to help spur conversations about important social issues faced by today’s youth.
