The Effects of Digital Media on Our Youth 


Aquinas Catholic Schools pleased to announce that Jay Martin, School Safety & Security Director with the Nebraska Department of Education, will be at Aquinas on Tuesday, March 5, 2024. This parent academy will give YOU the tools and the understanding of social media platforms available to your child, and to help guide your child towards safer platform participation. 

What do adults need to be aware of when devices are a big part of children’s lives? The core of many of the issues seen in schools originate from digital platforms, Apps, and media. Exposure to digital nuances imipact all of us on a behavioral, mental, and emotional level. Developing our digital wisdom will make us more mindful of the best practices to assist students with better digital: citizenship, literacy, privacy, and navigation within the virtual world to be a safer and more secure in the real world. Digital parent academies give adults the tools to build a child’s digital wisdom framework for safer platform participation.
