About this event
This interactive workshop is for adults, teens and tweens who want to explore how childhood has changed because of the internet and what we can do about it. We will watch clips from the documentary "Childhood 2.0" (available for free on YouTube https://www.childhood2movie.com/) and discuss what we can do to stay safer online. Learn what you need to know about cyberbullying, online predators, anxiety and other dangers online. By the end of the workshop, you will be able to lead an open conversation about the benefits and drawbacks of screen time and reduce exposure to the negative side of the internet.
