September 26, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDTFREE
Tune in for the Behind the Screen Webinar Hosted by AMLE.
How is social media influencing children and teens identity development, friendships, and conflict with other people? 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, approval can drive their insecurity and anxiety. In this webinar, Rosalind Wiseman will share insights from teens about the impact of social media on young people’s social dynamics, relationships and friendships through their social media platforms.

- 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 on 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.
