EDIFY: A Speaker Series with Ana Homayoun

In our always-on digital world, it can be hard for tweens and teens – and adults! – to successfully navigate online and IRL (In Real Life) worlds. Ana’s work, which is grounded in research and based on over fifteen years of working with students of all ages, offers practical solutions for students, parents, and educators as they navigate the ever-changing issues involving social networking and healthy teen development. Ana will be presenting to our students on November 14. For more information and a presentation schedule, please click here. 
With empathy, compassion, and humor, noted Silicon Valley author Ana Homayoun discusses some of the modern parenting dilemmas in the age of the smartphone and speaks about her latest book, “Social Media Wellness: Helping Teens and Tweens Thrive in an Unbalanced Digital World.” The book explores how the digital balancing act affects all aspects of our lives and personal wellness, and for students impacts academic abilities and social well-being, as well as emotional and physical health.

She will be presenting to students during the school day and offer a parent presentation in the evening. For more information, please  visit: www.anahomayoun.com and www.greenivyed.com.
