Peace Education: Be a Bridge, April 18, 2018, 8:30 am to 3:00 pm
Dr. Justin Patchin will speak on “Teen Technology Use and Misuse: Encouraging Integrity Online.” Dr. Patchin is a professor of Criminal Justice at the University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire. Since 2002, he has been exploring the intersection of teens and technology, with particular focus on cyberbullying, social networking, and sexting. He has traveled around the country (and abroad) training educators, counselors, law enforcement officers, parents, and youth on how to prevent the misuse of technology. Dr. Patchin is co-director of the Cyberbullying Research Center and has written eight books. His first co-authored book, Bullying Beyond the Schoolyard: Preventing and Responding to Cyberbullying, was named Education Book of the Year in 2009 by ForeWord Reviews. In 2014 he wrote Words Wound: Delete Cyberbullying and Make Kindness Go Viral to help teens navigate online problems. His latest book Bullying Today: Bullet Points and Best Practices came out in 2016. He has presented at the White House and the FBI Academy and has appeared on CNN, NPR, and in The New York Times to discuss the issues associated with teens' use and misuse of technology.
Carol Markham-Cousins will present to us on "Restorative Mindset and Language." Carol is the Executive Director at Meditation Services of Anoka. Markham-Cousins has a long history of bringing people together to inspire innovation and creating opportunities for solving conflicts in building successful organizations.
