Parents can be collaborators or obstacles when the topic of technology comes up. With more remote learning than ever, schools need parents. Educators often talk to parents when mistakes or accidents happen, as a reactionary measure. However, schools can be more proactive about preventing those mistakes by reaching out and understanding parents’ situations and worries. This edWebinar will draw from on-the-ground work with hundreds of parents, sharing survey results with their biggest concerns.

Educators will also learn:

  • The five most important things parents should know about digital citizenship
  • How, when, why and who with, to host a digital parenting event
  • How to be proactive with parents, not reactive

This edWebinar will be of interest to K-12 teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.

Register for the upcoming webinar, Teaching Digital Citizenship Through SEL Skill Building.
