Children spend an average of 6.5 hours each day looking at screens according to filmmaker Dr. Delaney Ruston, not including school work time. What impact does this have on today’s kids, their family life and their life at school? How can these kids be empowered to find the best way to balance the digital world with the real world and real life experiences?
A free public viewing of Dr. Ruston’s documentary “Screenagers: Growing Up In The Digital Age” will be held Sunday, May 28 at the Southeast High School auditorium in Cherokee, Kansas. The film starts at 6:00 p.m. The 65 minute documentary is followed by a discussion and survey session, and should take a total of about 90 minutes.
The free viewing, child care and refreshments are being paid for by a grant through Screenagers and the REACH Project. Visit www.screenagersmovie.com to view the preview.
Southeast is encouraging parents, staff, and other community members to join us in watching this film that asks “Are you watching kids scroll through life?”
