K-8 Family Tech Night
November 10, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Families are invited to attend K-8 Family Tech Night to learn more about keeping your child safe online. Some of the issues to be covered are discussed in this video from Common Sense Media. The evening will be divided into 3 sessions:
Students in grades 5-8: Music Room
Kristin Lee, counselor at the middle campus, and Leslie Jo Tottenham, counselor at the elementary campus, will present a NetSmartz workshop about Internet safety and responsibility for tweens.
Parents of students in grades 5-8: Auditorium
Kara Klein of the Stephanie V. Blank Center for Safe and Healthy Children and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta will present “How to Keep Kids Safe with Social Media.” The discussion will include the basics about social media networking sites, as well as “apps” available for mobile devices such as cell phones and tablets that youth frequently use, such as Twitter, Instagram, Kik, Snapchat, Whisper, and more! We will discuss the impact of social media, technology, and current trends in pop culture as well as gradual shifts in how teens engage in social interaction.
K-4 Students and Parents: Library Media Center
Join Instructional Technology Specialist Justin Stubbs, Library Media Specialist Jill Hanson, and some student helpers to learn more about being a safe digital citizen! Students and parents will participate in a group lesson, get recommendations for education-related websites and apps, and then try out some computer games that teach children about being safe online.
**parents bringing students in grades K-4th that would like to attend the 5th-8th parent session are asked to have their children team up with another family in the K-4th session**
