iChild? or I, Child! Sharon Maxwell PhD (speaker)

Aligning Communication Technology with Values that Nurture a Healthy Child, Community, and World.

From smartphones to laptops, from texting to Facebook, communication technology delivers to our children a new online environment, providing an infinite source of information, stimulation, and opportunities for communication. Raising healthy and responsible children in this online, in-your-face world has never been more challenging or more important. We are all witnessing the increased influence of the media and peers on how our children think and feel about themselves and the world around them. The effect on our children is profound.

This presentation shows parents how kids are using and abusing communication technology and helps parents set balanced, realistic guidelines that bring the Internet into alignment with family schedules and values.

Beyond Measure (film)

From the team that brought you Race to Nowhere: a film about transforming education from the ground up

This film asks us to reconsider the greater purpose of education. What if our education system valued personal growth over test scores? Put inquiry over mimicry? Encouraged passion over rankings? What if we decided that the higher aim of school was not the transmission of facts or formulas, but the transformation of every student? And what if this paradigm-shift was driven from the ground up? By students, parents, and educators? By all of us?
