Social Media and Our Children

As a parent of three, I am amazed at the role social media plays in the lives of my three children. While doing my best to keep tabs on my son Timothy who is a 9th grader and recently started a Facebook account and my daughter Bryn, a 7th grader who is an Instagram lover, I wonder sometimes whether I am doing enough to guide them in the appropriate use of these communication tools. It can certainly be overwhelming! I can’t even imagine what is coming down the road for my first-grader (pictured above) who is taking it all in
With this in mind, we invite parents to the February topic in our Technology Series For Parents – Social Media And Our Children. Please join Burlington Public Schools Director of Instructional Technology and me as we discuss some of the most popular Social Media sources of our students. We will discuss how parents can keep tabs on their children and share best practices in appropriate use of these resources.
We will also spend a little time discussing School Connect, a wonderful communication tool that the school district will be launching in March.
Finally, time during every Parent Tech Night session is also dedicated to technology related questions and support. All are welcome, so please feel free to bring a friend!
