Author Event: Ana Homayoun - Social Media Wellness

In today's always-on digital culture, many of today's students face a challenging paradox: the tools they need to use to get their work done - tablets and computers - often provide their biggest distraction from getting work done. As a result, students quickly become overwhelmed and stressed out trying to manage the daily confluence of online interactions with schoolwork, extracurricular activities, and family life. In this insightful new book, noted author and educator Ana Homayoun translates the new language of social media, and provides pragmatic, prescriptive advice on how to help students manage distractions, become more organized, improve time-management, boost productivity, promote wellness and relieve stress.   

With fresh insights and a solutions-oriented perspective, Homayoun explains how social media has created a new language of communication that parents and educators need to understand, and shows how parents, educators and students can work together to promote healthy socialization, effective self-regulation, and overall safety and wellness.
