Screenwise: Helping Kids Thrive in their Digital World

  • Mamiya Theater, Saint Louis School 3142 Waialae Avenue Honolulu, HI 96816 (map)

Hanahau’oli parents are invited to a special presentation by digital media and technology expert, Devorah Heitner. Progressive educators have always asserted that children construct meaning by interacting directly with their world: therefore, school experiences should build on this natural way of learning. This takes on a whole new meaning in the twenty-first century as we all work to navigate the complexities of the digital age and the desire to maintain meaningful human connections. Parents often worry that kids are addicted, detached or distracted because of digital devices. Often, adults are less conscious about what they are modeling with their own relationship with technology. In this session, Dr. Devorah Heitner, an expert on young people’s relationships with digital media and technology, will talk about how parents can effectively mentor tech-savvy digital natives by using their own lifetime of social wisdom.
