PRESENTATION: Want to know more about the cultural forces that impact the teenagers you work with, positively and negatively? Do you ever feel a little behind the times when hearing your students talk about their favorite shows, websites, or bands? Through survey results, live web exploration, a Q&A session with a youth panel and other presentation materials, this webinar will provide overviews and insight about the interests, activities, and other age-related cultural influences of today’s teenagers in NH, New England and beyond. Participants can expect to :

• Increase their knowledge about the pop culture media trends, including music, TV & web shows, and books, with a regional and US focus.
• Explore some of the websites and apps most popular with high school students.
• Gain further resources for information on cultural trends they learn about in the future.
