Do your students appear to be addicted to screens? How are we to prepare students not only for their physical futures, but also their digital ones?

This is a 3-credit hours action-based course where we jump into the causes and what we can do to combat the problem. We will arm ourselves with the resources we need to guide our students, based on their age, through growing up into their digital selves. Finally, this course redirects the learning towards parents so that they might be empowered with how to manage and navigate this overwhelming and ever-changing virtual environment that their children live in.

Required Course Material:
Glow Kids: How Screen Addiction is Hijacking our Kids and How to Break the Trance.

This class is available for License Renewal, Paraeducator or Audit credit.
