We partnered with our friends at iMPACTFUL to host a screening of the film LIKE, a program on a mission to inspire, inform, and help equip all of us to effectively regulate screen time. Following the film, Keely Keller, our Director of Professional Programs, joined filmmaker Scilla Andreen in leading a discussion about the many learning challenges in the classroom, and how these challenges have shifted over time. Almost 800 educators came together to discuss the powerful topic of how technology is greatly impacting education. If you missed the conversation, you can check out the recorded discussion below!
When iMPACTFUL first released LIKE in 2019, the conversations around technology, spending time online, children having access to the internet and other related topics, were very different. We used to discuss how old a child should be before they get a phone or about tactics for how to keep children off their devices, these conversations now hold a much higher stake. We’re now bringing in national security, online harm, privacy, attention, and how technology is changing learning and the role of the educator into the conversations.
