Medford-Save The Date, Feb 15th! Screenagers – Growing Up In The Digital Age

Screenagers – Thursday, February 15 @ 6:30 PM – Medford High School’s Caron Theater – Free of Charge

Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that with her own kids and learned that the average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. She wondered about the impact of all this time and about the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time—friction she knew all too well. 

Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.”

Come join us to view the award-winning film Screenagers on Thursday, February 15th at 6:30PM, in the Medford High School Caron Theater. This gripping documentary is being shown around the country and sparking some great conversation among communities on the impact that excessive tech time has on young people. It is our hope that we can come together as a community to discuss ways to help our young people achieve a healthier balance with their use of technology.

Thanks to the MHS/MVTHS PTO, this event is free and open to families, students and the community.  The film is less than an hour in length and will be followed by a brief panel discussion led by the Medford High School administrative team.
