Showing of Screenagers and Media Literacy Discussion

6:30 PM CT

Dear Parents,

Our children live in the digital world and need our help negotiating the challenges. As the speed and quantity of information grow exponentially, we need to critically think about the role media play in our lives, our society, and our world.

Isidore Newman is participating in national Media Literacy Week events nationwide by hosting a screening of the award-winning documentary, Screenagers. The film 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 begin to empower kids about how to best navigate and understand the pervasive impacts of the digital world. The evening’s events begin with opening remarks by Newman counselors Mimi Ryan and Michael Simon and will feature a brief discussion after the film, which runs 67 minutes. Please be aware that seating is limited to Newman parents only and RSVP required.
