Citizenship in a Connected Culture: How Schools, Parents, and Kids can work together

December 1st, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

In partnership with Common Sense Media, MLTI is hosting a webinar titled Citizenship in a Connected Culture: How Schools, Parents, and Kids Can Work Together on December 9, 2009, 3:15 – 4:00.

We are all experiencing how digital media is profoundly changing the nature of childhood, and is bringing with it opportunities and challenges that have a dramatic impact on the ethical, physical, and social development of young people today. Are your students prepared to use new technologies responsibly – and are their parents prepared to be media mentors for their children?

Learn strategies for engaging, educating, and empowering your parent communities about digital literacy and citizenship to help them raise kids that are safe, smart, and ethical media consumers and creators. At this webinar you’ll learn about:

  • A new vernacular for talking with parents about digital media and technology
  • Common Sense resources that can help you engage and educate parents
  • Best practices from schools that have successfully engaged their parent communities
