While our students are native to the digital age, they continue to struggle with how to balance and appropriately use the technology they have access to. SCREENAGERS: Growing Up in a Digital Age is an award-winning documentary on the effects of technology on our children's’ mental health. Dr. Delaney takes a personal approach on the subject as she explores concerns over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction in her own family. The documentary provides insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, to reveal how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.
