Devorah Heitner, PhD, an expert on young people’s relationship with digital media and technology and author of Screenwise, will share practical advice and tips to help your kids succeed in this new digital era.

  • Tips for teaching kids how to self-regulate their screentime
  • How to empower kids to use technology and digital media for social good
  • How to help kids through a virtual school day (brain breaks, physical activity, snacks and high fives!)
