About the Event

In this virtual workshop, youth media expert Devorah Heitner, PhD, explores the social-emotional components of "screen time" vs. "unplugged time" during this unusual period in family life. 

The webinar will cover the following questions/concerns: 

  • Setting up routines and spaces at home for distance learning
  • How to help kids deal with anxiety during this time
  • How to keep up with news without getting overwhelmed (and being cautious about what news sources kids are consuming)
  • How can adults model healthy habits and boundaries while working from home
  • How can social media help our kids keep in touch with friends?
  • How can parents mentor kids on social media, texting and gaming 
  • What should the "screen time" rules be for both recreational and learning tech use

Devorah Heitner, PhD, is the author of Screenwise: Helping Kids Thrive (and Survive) in Their Digital World and founder of Raising Digital Natives.

Parents, students, educators, and community members welcome! Free admission. Virtual Zoom session and Q&A will be video recorded.
