Posted: March 7, 2017

The Interschool Council (ISC) presents a special screening of Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age on Tuesday, April 25th at 7:00 PM at Welsh Valley Middle School.

We invite parents to join for a special viewing of the film Screenagers which probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including the director’s own, and depicts messy struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through surprising insights from authors and brain scientists solutions emerge on how we can empower kids to best navigate the digital world. Click here to watch a trailer. The ISC is also providing the film free of cost to both middle schools to be shown as an assembly.

In addition to being experts in their various fields, our three facilitators are parents in the Lower Merion School District:
