Digital Life Skills for Youth: A Workshop for Parents, Guardians, and Educators

“Research indicates that as many as 75 percent of teens have been bullied online, but only one in 10 have reported the problem to parents or other adults, a new study shows.” – NYTimes Blogs

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.

We remain closed, but we're committed to keep classes going through the next few weeks.

All classes that are normally scheduled for the next few weeks will continue, either by being re-scheduled, or in some cases, through livestreaming. If you're worried about cancellations, don't. Your class will be delivered one way or another.
We will communicate with all registered students via email. Please be sure to check your spam folder if you don't see any announcements.
Like all small businesses, we rely on our registrations to keep the school going. Without training opportunities, those looking for new careers in the next year will not have the education they need to move on. That's why we're committed to postponing classes, rather than cancelling them.
