About This Webinar

Did you start the school year with a cellphone policy and throw it out the window in a month? Does it feel like you're losing the battle with your students and their social media addiction? In this webinar, we'll talk about how to approach students so they understand that there is, indeed, a "cellphone situation" that is bigger than they are, and also provide guidance on how to disrupt their current addiction—an addiction that was exacerbated by the pandemic, but was always a part of the slippery slope of social media.

Join us to explore practical strategies and solutions that will help you regain control and foster a more focused learning environment. Learn from classroom teacher, author and union leader Amber Chandler, who will share her insights on the classroom trend of digital distraction and how to respond in a more productive and relatable manner. Discover new ways to engage students in meaningful conversations about their screen time and the impact of social media on their lives. You'll learn actionable tips and tools to help you implement and maintain a successful cellphone policy in your classroom. Don't miss this opportunity to disrupt the "cellphone situation" and create a healthier, more productive classroom atmosphere. Register now to empower yourself with the knowledge and skills to navigate the complexities of cellphone use and social media in your classroom.

This free, for-credit webinar is just one of many running as part of Share My Lesson's Summer of Learning series. Register now to watch them live or later on demand.
