Engaging and Teaching Parents About Technology

Are you interested in learning how to teach parents about technology? Join Carrie Rogers-Whitehead, Karina Gathu, and Tay Gudmundson on December 17 for “Engaging and Teaching Parents About Technology.”

About

Parents can be collaborators or obstacles when the topic of technology comes up. With more remote learning than ever, schools need parents. Educators often talk to parents when mistakes or accidents happen, as a reactionary measure. However, schools can be more proactive about preventing those mistakes by reaching out and understanding parents’ situations and worries. This webinar will draw from on-the-ground work with hundreds of parents, sharing survey results with their biggest concerns. Time for questions will be provided.

Featured Topics

In this webinar, professionals will:

    • learn the five most important things parents should know about digital citizenship,
    • learn how, when, why, and who to host a digital parenting event with, and
    • learn how to be proactive with parents, not reactive.

Registration

This webinar is best suited for K-12 teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders. To register, visit the EdWeb website.
