School and summertime for children are radically different than ever before. Elementary children have been spending more time on devices for educational purposes and for connection. How can technology be used in limited and developmentally appropriate ways? We invite you to invite a recorded webinar, Raising Digitally Resilient Children with Gloria Moskowitz-Sweet and Vinney Arora
- How being home-bound is impacting elementary children and families
- The evolving digital landscape and current trends
- Social-emotional and psychological responses to technology
- Responding to challenging issues: digital perfection, digital distraction, and addiction
- Strategies for promoting healthy digital use
