Tonight's Screenagers Showing and Consider Questions Posed to Students (Photo) - 02/07/18

Today, during first period 5th - 12th grade students and faculty at The Colorado Springs School (CSS) watched the award-winning film Screenagers. Prior to start of the film, Academic Dean, Mr. Gaylord posed the following questions intended to fuel thoughtful discussion between students, teachers and parents.

An additional screening of the film is free and open to the public, tonight, February 7, 2018 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Parents are encouraged to come and to bring their students. The evening viewing and discussion will occur in the Louisa Performing Arts Center at 21 Broadmoor Avenue on The Colorado Springs School campus.

ABOUT SCREENAGERS
Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that with her own kids and learned that the average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. She wondered about the impact of all this time and about the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time-friction she knew all too well.

In SCREENAGERS, as with her award-winning documentaries on mental health, Delaney takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids' development and offers solutions on how adults can
empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.
