Thursday Topic by Erin Walsh:
From Online Safety to Digital Citizenship:
Parenting in an Online World
Welcome to parenting in Web 2.0. The Internet, social networking, cell phones, video games and other digital innovations are game changers in our work and family life. We see examples in our kids every day as they multi-task, play on-line video games, create their own YouTube videos, text their friends and post on their Facebook pages.
Erin will explain how technology is changing the ways that kids learn and socialize. She will also describe both the amazing opportunities associated with growing up in a digital world and the things to watch out for. Parents will leave this workshop with a better understanding of how to maximize the benefits while avoiding the pitfalls of the online world. Erin will answer important questions like:
• Are kids really good multi-taskers?
• Is Internet addiction real?
• How can we address cyberbullying?
• Is texting connecting us or disconnecting us?
• What can young people do to become good, caring digital citizens?
