Dr. Jared Cooney Horvath

Teens, Tech, and Learning: A Tour Through the Developing Mind. Sometimes they’re bored, disengaged, and unmotivated. Other times they’re risky, unpredictable, and emotionally volatile. What is going on with teenagers?

Dr. Jared Cooney Horvath will explore how the brain develops, and how things change during adolescence and early adulthood. Through fun, interactive activities, parents, caregivers (and even their young people!) can learn how (and why) teenagers think differently than adults and consider ways we can support them academically, emotionally, and cognitively.
