Growing Up in the Digital Age

Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age

St. John School is hosting a screening for parents and students of the documentary film, Screenagers. Join us on Tuesday, March 21, at 7pm in Egan Hall for a free, must-see presentation.

Screenagers is a documentary that will likely strike a chord with many parents. It explores how teens interact with each other using electronic devices (smartphones, computers, social media, etc.) and looks at whether parents can — or should — try to limit or control this behavior. Many experts share their thoughts on the topics the movie covers, which include tech addiction, violent video games (some clips from the games are shown), digital citizenship, and more. It’s sure to prompt conversations about family communication and responsible tech use, especially if children and parents watch together.

Award-winning Screenagers probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including the director’s own, and depicts messy struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through surprising insights from authors and brain scientists solutions emerge on how we can empower kids to best navigate the digital world.  Visit the website for more information.
