In early December, middle school families were treated to a special after-school teen panel discussion on social media and the digital age with a representative from Common Sense Media.
Harker hosted the panel, which was held in the campus’ multipurpose room, for a handful of independent schools in the South Bay, explained Scott Kley Contini, the middle school’s director of learning, innovation and design.
“This panel took the form of a live discussion of social media and teen use with a representative from Common Sense Media and the seventh and eighth grade students from the participating schools,” recalled Kley Contini. He noted that parents of students from the participating schools, as well as Harker’s entire middle school faculty, were also invited to attend.
“This was a great opportunity to catch a glimpse of the real digital lives of our students,” said Kley Contini.
