ITEM:  Special Showing of “Screenagers” Monday Night at the Christa McAuliffe Conference

Last year we offered a free parent forum titled Cyberbullying, Sexting, & Unwise Social Networking: The Role of Parents, presented by one of our distinguished keynote speakers, Sameer Hinduja, co-director of the Cyberbulling Research Center as part of the 2015 Christa McAuliffe Technology Conference.  This forum, which over 125 families attended, was so well received we have another invitation we are asking you to help us distribute!

This year the 2016 Christa McAuliffe Technology Conference invites parents and teenagers to join us for a FREE showing of the award-winning documentary Screenagers, followed by questions and answers with a panel of educators and administrators. Screenagers is an hour-long documentary by physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston, who probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics, and internet addiction.  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.

Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span?  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.

Light refreshments will be served.  Screenagers is appropriate for adults and teens.
Date:  Monday, November 28, 2016
Time:  6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Location: Salon A, Radisson Hotel, Manchester, NH
RSVP Direct Link:  http://tinyurl.com/CMTC16-RSVP

Parents may also RSVP for this FREE event from the conference website at www.nhcmtc.org<http://www.nhcmtc.org>, responses are requested by Wednesday, November 23rd.

Last year we were able to live stream our speaker, we are looking into the permissions granted with renting the DVD to see if this will be an option for this year . . . if live streaming is available, the information will be posted on the website.

Attached is an invitation that you are encouraged to email to your parent lists and/or print and distribute to your students and teachers. We are also seeking the assistance of the state PTA/PTO organization to get the word out.  They were very helpful last year marketing our speaker on Cyberbullying.

Thanks so very much for helping us to spread the word,
Cyndi on behalf of the 2016 CMTC Steering Committee
