About this Event

Join other Minnetonka parents for this follow up panel discussion about the LIKE Documentary and the impact of social media and technology on our lives. Topics will include setting family rules/guidelines, parent/child technology contracts, smartphones, social media, streaming services, educational vs. entertainment screen time, and video gaming. Engage in small group discussion about ways to support healthy technology use, include kids in the conversation and successfully implement changes. Panelists will share tips and ideas to help and answer questions.

Panelists include Mathew Meyers, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Cindy Andress, Minnewashta Elementary Principal, Paula Hoff, Minnetonka Middle School West Principal, Jeff Erickson, Minnetonka High School Principal, and moderator Dave Eisenmann, Director of Instructional Technology and Media Services for Minnetonka.

If you missed seeing the LIKE documentary when it was shown in November or January, consider watching Max Stossel's 45 minute recorded student assembly and/or 60 minute parent presentation here. He's the star/narrator of the LIKE film and the Head of Education for the Center for Humane Technology. It's almost the identical content, just not professionally produced like the documentary which included interviews and graphics, etc. You can also watch a 20 minute talk about managing screen time and setting family guidelines around technology at home given by Dave Eisenmann, Director of Instructional Technology & Media Services. This video is nearly identical to the presentation he gave after each LIKE screening for Minnetonka parents.

Minnetonka students in grades 6-12 saw this documentary during school this year; grades 7, 8 and 10 viewed it in November, and grades 6, 9, 11 and 12 viewed it in February. The hope is that seeing the film helped spark informed conversations about social media use and help guide everyone toward a healthy relationship with social media, personal technology, and entertainment screen time.

Here is the handout that accompanied the film, Tips for Managing Social Media Use as well as numerous tips and resources on our District Digital Health & Wellness page. Thanks for your help discussing these topics with your students and family!
