Digital awareness in the digital age
In week two of Term Three, our Senior School students took part in interactive digital media workshops presented by Stephanie Byrne from Primary Care Connect.
Stephanie was a highly engaging speaker and introduced a number of topics with the purpose of helping our students develop informed attitudes around the connections between media advertising, online gaming and gambling, and the potential long-term effects of excessive screen time.
Each year level within the Senior School had the opportunity to attend this presentation, where they were able to watch a range of videos and be presented with information relating to gaming, gambling and advertising.
These sessions aimed to equip participating students with tools they can draw upon when interacting with these different forms of entertainment in the future, hopefully aiding their decision making in the process.
