Through all the uncertainties of parenting in the digital age, one thing is for sure: Smartphones are here to stay. They've unlocked a wealth of knowledge, entertainment, and convenience. But for our children, smartphones have also introduced a bevy of complications for their development and well-being.
Straight Talk '24: Navigating the Smartphone Era is a livestreamed event featuring top-notch panelists discussing how smartphones are impacting our children's minds, bodies, and classrooms.
Please join the GCISD Council of PTAs for a Straight Talk Watch Party and discussion on smartphones in our classrooms.
When: Monday, February 12th, 11:45am-1:15pm
Where: GCISD Professional Development Center (5800 Colleyville Blvd, Colleyville 76034)- Panther Den
What to Bring: Bring your own lunch and learn with us.
We hope all attendees will leave feeling more educated about the physiological effect of cell phones on children; more knowledgeable of recent research and studies on smartphone use; more understanding of pressures our children are facing; and more empowered to navigate how we use smartphones in our families and schools.
