Digital Parenting in the time of COVID resources
ABOUT THE EVENT: This Event Is Closed
Long-time media producer, Diana Graber, is a recognized expert on technology's impact on human behavior. Her engaging presentation addressed the unique challenges parents and children of ALL AGES are facing transitioning back to “normal.” The presentation covered:
Increased screen time / safe and productive social media use
Maintaining safe and healthy online relationships
How to manage digital reputations & maintain personal privacy online
In her book, RAISING HUMANS IN A DIGITAL WORLD: Helping Kids Build a Healthy Relationship with Technology, Graber deftly navigates and demystifies the complicated digital landscape facing today’s kids, defining buzzwords, answering crucial questions and providing parents and educators with activities they can use to teach children to harness technology rather than be harmed by it. An innovator in the field of digital literacy and trained in media psychology, Graber fully understands the overwhelming influence technology has on today’s young people and the challenges this presents. Everything a young person does online—every post, comment, photo—contributes to a digital profile that can open or close doors to their future.
