children digital media

Social networking, cell phones, and video games are game changers for young people - changing the ways that they learn, socialize, and make decisions. Yet while media headlines suggest that digital technologies are either good or bad for kids - evidence suggests that they are powerful. The good or bad depends upon how we use them. 

In this interactive and energizing presentation, Erin Walsh will connect the dots between the latest discoveries in brain science and the emerging challenges and opportunities related to "growing up digital." Using brain science, stories, and humor, Erin will help families understand practices that set our kids up for success.

Erin Walsh, M.A., was instrumental to the development of the MediaWise movement and enjoyed working with her father, David Walsh for 10 years at the National Institute on Media and the Family before creating Mind Positive Parenting in 2010.
