The Milford Prevention Council Youth Committee has been working hard all year for this upcoming program. In lieu of a live TED style presentation, we are proud to showcase these four StudentTalk presentations focused around teens and technology use.
#DRAINED takes us through the perils of phone addiction through the eyes of our youth.
For four nights, starting Tuesday, May 26, we will premiere a student presentation at 6pm. Set a reminder and join us.

Premieres Tuesday, May 26 @6pm
Anthony Ljuljdjurovic, Senior, Foran HS
How does technology impact contemporary society, and most especially the youth? There is an essential question attributed to that line of research and it is this; would life be better or worse without the internet and social media? As with all issues, there is no clear cut answer to this problem, knowing that many of the youth watching the video would lean heavily in favor of modern technology I spend this presentation focusing on how social media and the internet leech energy and time from our lives.
