Parenting In The Digital Age Presentation

BHS Instructional Technology Specialist Jennifer Scheffer co-presented with me this evening at our Parent Technology Night on the topic of Parenting in the Digital Age. We are sharing the presentation and links to resources that we discussed during the hour session below. We look forward to this ever-evolving conversation regarding the online lives of our students and how we can continue to support and educate parents in supporting their children.

The evening began with the great video below What Kids are (Really) Doing Online from Cyberwise.org.
