AMLE Thought Leader Session: Social Media #what?
November 7, 2017 @ 9:45 am - 10:45 am EST
Join Rosalind Wiseman & Charlie Kuhn for a Thought Leader Session at AMLE 2017: Social Media #what?
While young people are using social media to express their creativity and connect with others, many young people’s preoccupation with curating the ideal image to gain and maintain a sense of belonging or approval can drive their insecurity and anxiety. This session will share Cultures of Dignity’s most recent research about the impact of social media on young people’s social lives, self-identity, and how they perceive friendships through their social media platforms.
Participants will leave this session with:
– The latest developments in young people’s use of social media and its connection to identity development and group social dynamics
– How social media interactions between students impact the school community
