View this interactive edWebinar for early childhood educators (working with kids ages 0–8). The presenters cover how to facilitate meaningful conversations with parents and caregivers about helping young kids develop essential life skills, both with and without the use of screens. The session reviews Common Sense’s six turnkey workshops, available in English and Spanish, all designed to share useful strategies with parents and caregivers. You’ll leave with resources that you need to have conversations and workshops on the following six topics:

  • Raising Healthy Kids in a Digital World
  • Finding Balance with Media and Tech Use at Home
  • Choosing High-Quality Media for Your Kids
  • How to Make Meaningful Family Connections Using Media and Tech
  • Introducing Online Safety to Young Kids
  • How to Use Media and Tech to Build Life Skills in Young Kids

These workshop activities are based on Common Sense’s in-depth analysis of the relationships between children’s use of high-quality media content and their screen time, and the development of executive functioning skills: Children, Executive Functioning, and Digital Media: A Review, 2020. The toolkit supports intermediaries who work with families, including community leaders, promoters, family educators, family engagement coordinators, and school-based family liaisons.

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to early childhood educators and education leaders.
