Tech Savvy Parenting: October Event

I am pleased to announce the first Tech Savvy Parenting night which is a new “Digital Bootcamp Series” designed to educate and connect parents and community members of Burlington Public Schools. The first event is being held on Tuesday, October 7th from 6:00 to 7:30 pm at Marshall Simonds Middle School in the Library Commons. The focus of the first event will be on digital safety and is geared towards parents of students in grades K-12.

I, along with BPS EdTech team member Kelly Floyd both specialize in digital citizenship education. Kelly will be sharing her knowledge and expertise on digital safety with parents in grades K-8. I will be providing information, strategies, and digital citizenship resources for parents of children in grades 9-12. This will be a hands-on, interactive session, so parents are encouraged to bring some type of device to the event, whether it be a laptop, smartphone, or tablet. This evening will be an excellent opportunity to learn how to balance giving your child digital freedom, while still keeping him or her safe.

We ask that you RSVP for this free event by registering through Event Brite. The link to register can be found by clicking here or through the link provided on the flyer shown below. Please note that printed tickets are not necessary to bring to the event. Kelly and I hope you will join us on Tuesday, October 7th! Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at jscheffer@bpsk12.org. And because we would like this to be an open dialogue, you may absolutely bring your son or daughter to the event!

    Don’t miss our first Tech Savvy Parenting Night on October 7th at Marshall Simonds Middle School! This is a great opportunity for parents to learn more about all of the current social media tools that their students are using. The discussion will focus on how parents can use these tools themselves and also how to support their students as digital citizens.

    Sign up now in the post below! We look forward to learning with you this year!
