Life in the Digital Age: Healthy Habits

Life in the Digital Age is a three-part lecture series for parents to understand why our children act the way they do; how companies exploit both us and our children; and how, as parents, we can provide safety in the digital age. This series will be led by Andy Stacey, MEd, a lead technology coach and instructor at Bellevue High School.

Andy Stacey received his MEd in curriculum and instruction with a specialty in technology leadership from Bowling Green State University. He regards himself as an early millennial who has grown and adapted in a world full of change. He has seen the introduction of broadband internet and the device world we live in, however still recollects using the rotary phone to call friends, and vividly recalls using the encyclopedia for schoolwork. Stacey’s background as both a teacher and technology leader helps him provide a space for strategies, ideas and feedback for parents, students and teachers in the Bellevue School District.
