Parenting in the Digital Age

Kids are spending more time participating in social media, online gaming, and online learning. This interactive workshop is designed to help parents learn the basics of Digital Citizenship and to learn strategies for keeping their children safe and responsible online. We will discuss the 3 Ps (Privacy, Property, and aPpropriate Use) of ethical technology behaviors and how to talk with your child about their online activities.
We will explore online resources and will have time to share and discuss strategies and tips with other parents. Our goal is to empower parents to ensure productive, safe, and ethical use of technologies at home.
