That Crumpled Paper Was Due Last Week: Helping Distracted Students Organize/Integrate Their Online and Real-Life Worlds
Sponsored by Glenbard Parent Series (GPS).
In today’s complex digital landscape, teens (and adults!) are forced to navigate a wide variety of technological and organizational challenges. As students adapt to changing school systems, it becomes increasingly important to help young people integrate and organize their real-life and digital worlds. Ana Homayoun, a noted educational consultant, offers strategies on how to support students in building and improving executive functioning skills – persistence, time management, working memory, and self-control – all critical for school success and mental and physical health. Join us for this presentation that will bring a perspective to the latest trends in the world of social media socialization and share the practical tips young people need to make better choices around social media use, managing distractions, and overall wellness.
