AMLE Featured Session: Behind the Screen: Understanding the Power of Social Media in Young Peoples’ Lives
October 25, 2018$249 – $499
Join Rosalind Wiseman for a breakout session at AMLE 2018!
How is social media influencing children and teens’ identity development, friendships, and conflict with other people? This session will share Cultures of Dignity’s most recent research about the impact of social media on young people’s social dynamics and friendships through their social media platforms.
In this session, we will:
- Examine latest developments in young people’s use of social media and its connection to identity development and group social dynamics
- Identify how social media interactions between students impact the school community
- Share strategies for middle schoolers to responsibly handle conflicts on social media
- Highlight why adults’ efforts to communicate with young people about social media can be so challenging and provide participants with effective alternatives so young people don’t so easily shut down and disengage.
