Welcome to Living with Laptops: A Parent Workshop

Facilitated by Kim Cofino

Our Agenda

Workshop Overview

workstation

At this parent workshop, we will talk about the elements of Digital Citizenship: including online safety, responsibility, behavior and balance - what they are, why they are important, how we can make good choices (meaning open and honest conversations with children, rather than monitoring/tracking), the difference between interacting in a face to face environment and an online environment, as well as parenting strategies to support this kind of behavior at home.

Workshop Goals:

  • Helping parents understand how their children use technology,
  • Why it's important that we all have play time with technology, and
  • How parents can tap into the parenting and life skills they already have so they can transfer them to the digital world.

Parents are encouraged to bring their laptops.
