Faculty and Parents Share Resources on Parenting in the Digital Age
Lower School parents sat down with LS Technology Coordinator Dan Stahl and other faculty on April 19 for Family Tech Talk, a workshop about social networking, texting, gaming and tips to help children use the Internet responsibly.
Technology is changing fast, and many parents are struggling to stay one step ahead of children. This isn’t an easy task—kids have never known life without the Internet and, in many cases, they know more about it than parents.
Parents and faculty discussed what children are doing online and how to teach them to be smart, safe and respectful digital citizens. Stahl and others shared tips and resources, starting with Stahl's Parent Toolbox. And if you missed the workshop, we invite you to watch this video of Family Tech Talk, which we recorded.
The workshop is among several opportunities to learn more about online safety and digital use at Penn Charter so far this year. The Montgomery County District Attorney's Office spoke to Middle School parents about social media and the law. Later in the year, Ana Homayoun, an expert on social media wellness, spoke to grades 5-12, and to parents, as part of our Distinguished Speakers Series.
