Dr. Steiner-Adair joins PBS News Hour’s Jeffrey Brown to talk about social and emotional challenges of the Digital Age and the need to “outsmart our smartphones” to be savvy users. Excerpt: “…One of the good trends I see happening more and more in the schools I work in is that schools are doing more intentional education around social emotional intelligence, teaching kids digital citizenship, teaching the tools of cultural literacy, really helping them understand that multitasking doesn’t help you get your homework done well at all, and really trying to help children understand the disinhibiting effects of being on the Internet can lead them to say and do and act in ways that are not their best selves.” Listen or read more at: pbs.org
