Join us for “Digitally Disconnected: Understanding the Digital Divide During COVID-19,” a Children and Screens Ask the Experts webinar addressing the ways that COVID-19 has exacerbated the digital divide for children and families. This virtual workshop will explore how children and adolescents struggle to cope with the demand for constant connectivity with limited access to fast internet and/or the devices they need to attend virtual school and connect with peers. A panel of multidisciplinary experts from the fields of public health, education, psychology, and parenting will discuss how a lack of internet privileges in the digital age is affecting the socioemotional, developmental, and physical wellbeing of children and what parents, schools, and policymakers can do about it. In addition, this important webinar will provide useful resources, tools, and opportunities for communities in need as well as recommendations for how those with ample resources can help.
For those who are interested, there will be an opportunity at registration to indicate whether you would like to ask your question live on camera during the workshop.
