Understanding as favorable the technological advance to which we are constantly subjected, we believe that there is a small mismatch. Our young people and teenagers grow up surrounded by digital tools, which in addition to providing a lot of help in different aspects of their lives, are depriving them of others, perhaps less striking, but basic for a good development.
We do not want mobile phones or social networks to end up spending more time with young people than family, friends, sports, leisure activities or other activities.
So, Desconect@ is launched with the clear objective that young people learn to make proper use of new technologies. We do not seek to forbid or make anything disappear, we simply want to optimize our resources in the best possible way.
Our program aims to make adolescents aware of the advantages, disadvantages and risks of new technologies. Through dynamic group activities and attending to their real concerns, we will work on new strategies for the use of mobile phones and social networks.
Desconect@ was created in 2012, by those times society was not yet alarmed by the current problem: we spent too much time with the mobile in our hands and we dedicate them too much time. The dependency that Social Networks and videogames have created (frequently used from the telephone device or from a computer) has exceeded all educational and health provisions.
They manifest with problems in the self-control of behavior and emotions, violating the rights of others and can lead the adolescent to major conflicts with the norms of society or with authority figures.
