Loneliness in the Social Media Age
Walk into any classroom today whether it be one of privilege or high risk and you will hear the same repeated tone of loneliness in the social media age. So ‘where are we leading the next generation?’ and ‘what are we reaching for?’ During this session you will better understand the challenges of sustaining balance body, mind and soul in a technology driven society. This workshop reflects upon four key messages which offer tools to help you inspire students to reconnect with what is important in life.
Kim Laureen is co founder of Fresh Independence Productions - a writer, speaker and advocate for youth and families at risk. She is Director of the newly released documentary 'selfless' and the initiative born from this film #RaiseTheBar. Kim says being a mom of 8 has prepared her well and lends authenticity, compassion and understanding to the challenges parents and teachers face today.
For ERC/ECER participants who will not be able to attend the screening at ECER Wednesday, 12:00 - 14:00, there will be a screening at the local cinema Metropolis Kino (kleine Theatrestraße 10, 20354 Hamburg) on Tuesday at 21:15. The director, Kim Laureen, will be present to introduce the film and answer questions after.
