“Parenting in the Digital Age"
Presenter: Steve Garton, Common Sense Education
Digital citizenship and keeping kids safe online is such an important topic. We were so proud to be able to feature #digcitkids in a recent webinar with Curran Dee and Marialice Curran, a mother/son team who are the co-founders of #digcitkids. Curran shared "Digital Citizenship from a Kid's Perspective" and it was so exciting to hear about their initiative. In today's webinar we are thrilled to hear from Steve Garton from Common Sense Education to learn how the amazing Common Sense resources can support parents and educators with "Parenting in the Digital Age." The Common Sense resources are exemplary, and this is the "go to" site for teachers and parents alike when they want support for curriculum, ideas and materials that will help promote safe online activities with kids. Steve will share information about many of these resources including Common Sense Media, Common Sense Education, Common Sense Kids Action and Connecting Families. His insights into the research about how teens/tweens are using media and ways to help them find balance with their digital lifestyle will be invaluable and will provide ways parents and teachers can support activities such as video games, social media, screen time, sharing online and much more!
