Parenting in the Digital World workshop
SAT 29 OCT 7.00PM
No one cares more about your child’s well-being and success than you do. In today’s digital age, that means guiding them not just in the real world but in the virtual world as well. Teach your children to use technology in a healthy way and pick up the skills and habits that will make them successful digital citizens.
From 2-year-olds who seem to understand the iPad better than you to teenagers who need some (but not too much) freedom, we’ll walk you through how to make technology work for your family at each stage of the journey.
We have secured a guest speaker from the Alannah and Madeline Foundation, who will present a selection of advice based on formal research and our extensive work with schools, children and their parents.
The school has organised this event to support all parents across all year levels in our school and the wider community, to play an active role in their child’s digital world.
This session includes detailed information on risks and opportunities afforded by technology for young people, with practical tips on how to stay safe.
Understand the risks and opportunities afforded by technology for young people.
