The Technology and Social Media use in the adjusted COVID19 reality with JESSE MILLER
A discussion with parents about technology and social media use in the adjusted COVID19 reality we all share.
With the 2020 experience in mind, children navigating screen-time, free-range online behaviours, and gaming are focal points for parents and caregivers. Supporting families as we move forward in 2021, we need to fine tune the student culture of communicating in personal, professional, and entertainment online spaces. The main themes of conversation in this session will include media literacy, screen time balance, reporting negative online interactions and experiences, and beneficial use of social media and associated internet tools.
The following topics will be discussed:
– Understanding and using social media responsibly
– Balancing technology use for school, communication, and entertainment
– Positive use of gaming & participation in internet communities
– Digital consent in social sharing
– School and public enforcement of internet actions & behaviours
– Reporting tools for unsafe internet behaviours
