RAISING DIGITALLY RESPONSIBLE LEARNERS March 8th 6:30 to 8:30
by Shaun McKenna - Friday, 2 March 2018, 12:00 PM
 

This is a FREE information session located at the Henry Grub Education Centre and hosted by Safer Schools Together, and our local liaison officers. See attached poster.

This presentation for parents will focus on all things digital

As a parent, you must lead the charge as a digital role model and help
your child develop a strong digital citizenship foundation while reminding
them that their digital footprint is a reflection of their real and online
selves. At this age, they will encounter situations that will challenge their
independence, including cyberbullying (and more commonly –
cyberexclusion), the dangers of anonymity, privacy, sharing intimate
images, and inappropriate websites, and you need to be there to
provide support and guidance during this critical period. Finally, to
better equip you for your digital parenting strategy, a snapshot of the
current trends and concerning apps will be provided.
