Our Continuing Education Course Based on
the LIKE Film

Course 5115 | 3 Credits | Gr. 5-12+

For digital natives, social media has become the primary way to communicate. It has also become a big obsession: keeping up with one another, using photos and “likes” as currency. Exploring the Impact of Social Media will help educators and in turn, digital natives, understand the effects of social media on the brain, and how the coding in apps aim to keep us paying attention. Social media is a tool, not good or bad, but too much use can be detrimental to health and self-identity. This course illuminates the benefits and the drawbacks of our online interactions so we can all learn to regulate our use of social media, along with several creative ways to keep technology in its place.
