PA Meeting & Navigating Technology Talk

May 18 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am

Event Navigation

Meet & greet new Faculty Chair, Kelly O’Halogan (for PA Reps): 8:10am
Parent Association Meeting: 8:30am (Last of school year!)
Navigating Technology Talk: 9:00am
LOCATION: Miller Library

Parents, please join us in the Miller Library for a Parents Association sponsored talk, Navigating Technology, Smartphone Use and Social Media. This special Parent Association meeting is specifically designed to address the inherent challenges and responsibilities associated with internet use among children and, more specifically, issues that may come up if a child has access to a smartphone at home. While technology, in many respects, can prove to be a valuable educational tool, it is critical that families open up lines of communication regarding responsible usage. As our children grow, the role technology plays inevitably grows as well. We hope to facilitate a meaningful and ongoing conversation regarding technology, as well as provide concrete tools and strategies in navigating and setting limits on media use.

In this workshop, we will discuss: Social Media, Smartphone usage, Parental Controls, Cyberbullying, “Sexting,” and Family Media Contracts. We will also offer strategies in talking to children about internet content and healthy relationships. Please bring your phone or tablet; part of our workshop will be hands on.

We look forward to seeing you there!
