FROM THE
FILMMAKER

Delaney Ruston, M.D.

When we released the first Screenagers movie, I couldn’t have imagined the impact it would make. Our movies have been seen by over 5 million people in more than 10,000 communities around the world.

To this day, our website — filled with the resources, blogs and podcasts we've built and updated over the course of 6 years — continues to receive millions of visitors annually.

It is deeply humbling to have been trusted to offer support to so many families over the years, which is why I am so pleased to introduce “The Screenagers Project.”

This new platform is designed for schools and brings together all of our movies and resources for unlimited use in the classroom — along with a brand new curriculum & lesson plans, resources for educators and a lot more.  

About

The Screenagers Project is our online platform giving members unlimited access to our movies, curriculum and wide range of resources.

Members can enjoy on-demand access to our movies for their institutional use - e.g. in the classroom, along with the option to run public screenings of the movies for their communities - e.g. Parents Nights.

Our extensive curriculum contains lesson plans for use in the classroom. Each lesson plan is tailored to a specific age group and builds on the themes of the movies. Independently aligned with CASEL® SEL Competencies, this curriculum supports your existing Social Emotional Learning and Digital Citizenship programs.

Members will also have access to a range of additional resources exclusive to The Screenagers Project, designed to support educators and their communities.

Who can be
a member?

The Screenagers Project was primarily designed to benefit schools and the communities they serve.

Membership is offered on a "one institution per membership" basis - so in the example of a school, membership would mean the faculty and staff of that school could access and enjoy the benefit of the platform.

School districts or other bodies purchasing on behalf of a number of individual schools would do so on basis that each school would need their own membership and discounted rates are offered in this scenario so please inquire.

All memberships are offered on a 12-month basis and many other suitable use cases do exist so please do get in touch to discuss your needs with a member of our team.

OUR MOVIES

Screenagers: growing up in the digital age

The average kid spends many hours a day looking at screens for entertainment. Filmmaker and physician Delaney Ruston wondered about the impact of all this screen time on kids and the friction from it in homes and schools. Delaney probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction.

Through poignant and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists and brain scientists, Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how to best empower kids to navigate the digital world and find balance.

Screenagers next chapter: Addressing Mental Health in the digital Age

Screenagers Next Chapter is a deep dive into teen stress, anxiety and depression in the digital age. Dr. Delaney Ruston includes her own parenting journey once again, this time searching for ways to help her daughter through depression.

The movie weaves together personal stories and pairs them with evidence-based practices from the top researchers, psychologists, psychiatrists, pediatricians and educators. The movie focuses on how to empower teens to overcome mental health challenges and build emotional agility and stress resilience.
