Arrowsmith School Toronto is hosting an evening of learning about the effects of digital devices on mental wellness with Matthew Johnson. Please join us as we gather together to understand how digital stress can impact learning.
Matthew will discuss how being connected to devices can have a negative impact on mental wellness. Based on recommendations from the Canadian Pediatric Society’s Digital Health Task Force, this presentation will cover how to get a good start by managing young children’s screen use, how to help older kids get the positive benefits of networked devices while avoiding their drawbacks, and how to teach teenagers to manage the digital stress that comes with their connected lives.
