    RAISING DIGITALLY RESPONSIBLE LEARNERS
    by Blair Lloyd - Friday, 2 March 2018, 11:06 AM
     

    YOU ARE INVITED!
    Your child has now entered into their digital media lives, where cell
    phone ownership doubles, video game use explodes and they dive into
    the world of social media and hypertexting. Your child is rapidly
    developing their personal identity with cell phone in hand and you need
    to be prepared. Family rules, parental controls and developing a family
    tech plan will be outlined as well as recommendations for monitoring
    your teen’s digital life.
    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.
