Conversation about Technology
Joseph Hickey Library
Changes in technology have made our children’s experiences fundamentally different from the way their parents grew up. Texting, Snapchat, Internet use and other media are impacting the way students today relate to one another and, consequently, the way they may view themselves. Join Upper Division Director Darel Shelton for a parent conversation about this important issue. This is not a “how to” lecture, but rather a time to share perspectives and gain insights about how to raise healthy children in the digital age.
