Are you using technology or is technology using you

We invite students and families to watch this important and enlightening film together, from the comfort of your own home. This topic is all the more relevant at this difficult time in which our lives are so dependent on technology and can be that much more distracted by social media while we are indulged in online remote learning.

Screenings via Zoom:

  • Tuesday, May 12 at 7:30pm
  • Wednesday, May 13 at 7:30pm
  • Thursday, May 14, at 7:00pm, followed by a discussion led by DVHS Support Counselor Joe Ianora. The Discussion will be recorded and made available to anyone who doesn't participate in the Thursday showing of the film.

If you are interested in viewing the film but cannot make any of these dates and times, please contact us and we may be able to accommodate an alternate/individual viewing up to Sunday May 17.

About the Film

LIKE is an IndieFlix Original documentary that explores the impact of social media on our lives and the effects of technology on the brain. Technology is a tool. It’s here to stay and social platforms are a place to connect, share and care, but what’s really happening? Are we addicted? How do we stop? Where do we start? What do we need to know? By understanding the effects of technology and social media on the brain, on our lives and on our civilization, we can learn how to navigate it more safely together.

Our goal for this film is to inspire people of all ages, especially kids, to self regulate. It’s not about blame. It’s about looking in the mirror and empowering ourselves to create balance in our lives and to learn to be there for each other. The goal of the film is to inspire us to self-regulate. Social media is a tool and social platforms are a place to connect, share, and care … but is that what's really happening?
