The Bronxville School invites parents, students in grades 5-12, faculty members and residents to its second free screening of the documentary “Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age” on June 9 at 7 p.m. in the auditorium.
The film, which was previously screened at the district in April and garnered support and interest from the community, focuses on the impacts of growing up in the digital age. In her film, Delaney Ruston explores the struggles over social media, video games, academics and Internet addiction, and discusses whether children spend too much time on their electronic devices.
“‘Screenagers’ is a very relevant film,” Director of Technology Jennifer Forsberg said. “Anyone who works with children or has children can easily relate to the film with regard to screen time, video games, social media and general Internet use. After viewing the film, there are immediate ideas and conversation starters for all.”
Following the film screening, Forsberg will lead a panel discussion regarding the issues raised in the documentary. Panelists will include Devorah Heitner from Raising Digital Natives and Liana Slater from Common Sense Media.
