The Digital Wellness Symposium, hosted virtually on May 14 by the EdHub, sprouted from the idea that children in middle school enjoy discussing what they’re doing online when the environment feels safe and non-judgmental. This event, explains SOE professor Liz Kolb, provides a space where students and their caregivers can have open conversations about healthy online behavior, and ask questions about social media platform use. 

Listen to the full episode of the Michigan Minds podcast, as Kolb comments on why the middle-school age group was chosen as the key audience for this discussion.
