The Milford Prevention Council Youth Committee worked hard all year to create this TED-style program focused around teens and technology use. #DRAINED takes us through the perils of phone addiction through the eyes of our youth.
As an official TEDed Student Club, we are proud to submit these student videos for consideration for the world-renowned TED stage.
Congratulations to Anthony Ljuljdjurovic, Morgan Taylor, Liam Fedigan and Isabela Meade.
Part 1 of 4 in the #DRAINED series
Anthony Ljuljdjurovic, Class of 2020, 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.
