In our line of work compassion fatigue can be seen as an occupational hazard.  We spend so much time taking care of those around us that we often lose touch with the impact this can have on us both physically and emotionally.  This workshop will explore what compassion fatigue is, how we can identify when we are overloaded and what we can do to build our own personal resilience. 106

Title: Why Digital Wellness Is The New BYOD Alanna Harvey

Moderator:

Marianne Harvey

Alanna Harvey is a 27-year old tech entrepreneur who advocates for digital wellness, which is our physical and psychological well-being in a digital world. Scientific evidence has revealed that our blurry relationship with our screens can be dangerous if it’s not properly balanced with time spent offline, where individuals can connect more deeply with one another and get into flow without distractions. Alanna’s startup, Flipd, is a rapidly-growing technology company that’s proving students are particularly interested in spending more time offline, and educators should be supporting this movement. In this workshop, Alanna will reveal some key insights pointing toward this trend, share how Flipd is teaching students to disconnect, and discuss what this means for the next generation of learners. 119
