Addressing Social Media, Current Events, and Tech in Schools

Tue. September 12, 2023 | 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm CDT

Every day, students are flooded with social media posts, comments from friends, changing tech trends, and a variety of societal pressures. Schools try to support student well-being throughout all of this, but the task is vast, complicated, and nuanced. In some cases, educators find themselves working in a space that’s not just new to them, but also rapidly evolving.

How can teachers and education leaders stay ahead of this curve while supporting their students’ mental health? Join us for an empowering and interactive discussion geared toward helping K-12 educators understand these challenges and implement proven strategies already in use in numerous innovative school districts.

During this discussion, attendees will learn:

  • 5 best practices for modernizing life skills and social media education
  • The latest research behind why schools are adopting a positive approach to social media that empowers and equips students, rather than scares and restricts
  • The role of social media and technology in student mental health across several age groups

Illinois educators who attend live can earn 1.0 PD credit.
