Digital Well-Being: Evidence-Based Lessons for the Classroom
The ongoing youth mental health crisis is so deeply connected with students’ tech experiences, and educators have a crucial role to play. Attend this edWebinar to learn about a (free) collection of new lessons, co-developed by Common Sense Education and the Center for Digital Thriving at Harvard Graduate School of Education, that help bring digital well-being support into the classroom.
These lessons draw on evidence-based practices (e.g., learning to catch and challenge “thinking traps” that can be magnified by social media) and are aimed at building agency, reducing anxious thoughts, and building mindfulness related to students’ tech habits. Attend this edWebinar to:
- Explore four new, evidence-based lessons that you can use immediately to start building digital well-being for middle and high school students
- Learn about the research that supports these lessons to understand how and why they are relevant to your students and what you can do about it
- Bring back to your community implementation strategies and resources that level up your school’s SEL initiative to incorporate digital well-being
This edWebinar will be of interest to middle and high school teachers, librarians, and school leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
