154: How Should Teenagers Interact With Their Phones and Other Devices? Interview with Brett Ullman


What do you hope your students’ relationship is like with their phone? What’s the ideal way for an adolescent to interact with technology? What’s the right amount of screen time per day?

These are the questions that we should be wrestling with as youth workers. Instead, teenagers often see adults simply becoming frustrated around their use of technology. But what if we could be thoughtful about the conversation and think strategically about how to help teenagers practically engage better with the devices that are so accessible to them? That’s where the conversation goes in today’s interview with Brett Ullman!
