Today’s youth have access to more technology and information than ever before. That access includes risks in many forms such as cyberbullying, identity theft, and requests for nudity. There’s also some loss of personal connection and community, and a potential negative impact on their mental wellness.
While the risks are real, bestselling author and educator, Angela Crocker advocates for a proactive approach. Rather than fear what might happen to youth online, she wants parents, teachers, and guardians to empower youth with digital savvy so that they know what to do day to day, and where to seek help if dangers pop up in their feeds.
In this informative and practical session, you will:
- Identify the factors that impact when youth are ready to access technology.
- Learn physical and mental wellness behaviors that can be impacted by excessive screen time.
- Understand the tricky tactics youth use to hide their digital activity from parents and teachers.
- Explore skills your teen needs to develop to enjoy a healthy, productive, creative,online life.
- Learn about digital privilege contracts to govern how youth use technology.
This workshop is designed for parents, teachers, and guardians helping youth navigate the digital life.
