Digital Citizenship: Parent Workshop
Parents of young learners explore the world of digital citizenship by evaluating their own relationship to technology. The best way to ensure positive digital citizenship for children is to bring consciousness and intention to parents’ own digital citizenship. Then, model it for them and keep the discussion open and active.
