Max Stossel visits University Liggett School
To breathe, to feel anxious, to experience boredom, to let your mind wander, to have a conversation at the dinner table, to be at peace with yourself, ultimately to find balance with technology and not feel the need to reach for an electronic device hundreds of times a day – that was the message Max Stossel, Head of Education for the Center for Humane Technology brought to the University Liggett Community during a two-day visit at the school.
Stossel was on campus for a series of events surrounding the screening of the movie “LIKE,” of which Stossel was a narrator and contributor. He moderated a forum with parents and educators directly after a community screening of the film Wednesday night.
On Thursday, Stossel led a discussion with 5th graders, middle and upper school students about how social media, technology and video games affect their everyday lives. Students viewed the film “LIKE” prior to the discussions with Stossel and came to the sessions engaged and with many meaningful questions and ideas.
