Useful Tools for Helping Students Understand the World of Social Media in Constructive Ways

Many of us are "always on" scrolling through social media, checking email, or searching the web. Media spaces can be sites that nurture or harm, and become sources of anxiety, jealousy, and despondency. We welcome Dr. Angela Gorrell, who will speak to us about tools to engage social media in constructive ways.
