About the event
As the world slowly returns to 'normal', how do parents navigate screen-time for their kids? #KidsOnTech, a timely and thought provoking documentary co-produced by AWSNA (Association of Waldorf Schools in North America), explores this question. Post-pandemic, the need for renewed awareness about the effects of digital over-exposure on children has never been more urgent. Join Waldorf Academy for a free screening of the film on Wednesday, Dec 15 from 7:00-8:00 PM EST! The screening will be immediately followed by a LIVE Q&A session with film co-producer, Pierre Laurent.

About the film
Parents and teachers around the world struggle with their kids’ dependence on devices today. As Covid has forced our kids to rely on technology more than ever, “#KidsOnTech” looks at the impact on children’s developing bodies and brains, and asks: “How might we better prepare our kids for this digital world?” Voices from India to the U.S., France to China, Mexico to Japan explore what children need to truly excel in a future dominated by tech, including insights from a Google designer, a German brain scientist, and New York Times journalist, Matt Richtel, whose story on a Silicon Valley school created an international media frenzy.
