Dr. Jill Walsh's Enter the Digital World of Your Tween/TeenWe cannot pretend that digital technology does not impact our children, but in what ways and to what effects? Why are they always on their phones? And exactly what is going on with Fortnite?
Join Dr. Jill Walsh's talk that will outline the landscape of tween digital media use and provide insights for caregivers trying to navigate this world with them. Using examples from her research, she will discuss the good, the bad, and the just plain confusing in their mediated experiences.
