Teodora Pavkovic is a youth psychologist and Director of Community Engagement at Linewize, whose mission is to protect every child's digital journey and to keep students safe at school, at home, and everywhere in between as they engage with the online world. The pandemic changed how students learn and socialize. The increased use of online devices, social media, and suspect websites impacted the mental health and well-being of students, and changed the responsibilities of teachers and parents to ensure safe digital behavior.  

Teodora explains, "On the one hand, we are a technology company. We provide tech-based solutions in the form of filtering, classroom management, of safety monitoring. And then, more recently, a well-being assessment tool as well. And then the second piece, which is particularly relevant for me and for my work, is that community support and education. So really making sure that the staff and the parents, and the students themselves are educated around all the topics within the online safety and digital wellness realm."

"I don't think that we can talk about the youth mental health crisis and children's well-being without also really talking about that online digital component. The two are just inextricably linked at this point."
