As part of practising Digital Wellness, parents of students K-12 recently joined Justin Medved, Director of Learning Innovation and Technology and Elissa Kline-Beber, Director of Wellness to an evening session on fostering digital citizenship and wellness. They discussed how The York School takes a whole school approach to developing healthy digital habits and skills in our students as they navigate an increasingly interconnected world. The session addressed issues such as:
  • limiting digital distraction
  • managing gaming
  • promoting healthy sleep habits
  • social media etiquette, and
  • as parents - setting an example for our children.
Student leaders also shared the adolescent voice on some of these timely issues how they are helping steward the conversation at school as part of the student-led Digital Citizenship initiative. For those interested to learn more, read the Full Presentation.
