Description

The 2017-18 LLESD Parent Education Series kicks off with nationally acclaimed author of Screenwise: Helping Kids Thrive (and Survive) in Their Digital World and founder of Raising Digital Natives, Dr. Devorah Heitner.

In the digital world, no skill is more crucial than empathy. Dr. Heitner’s research shows that kids are highly attuned to relationship challenges and stressors that constantly-connected digital lives can create. Expanding on her popular TEDx talk, “Raising a Digital Native,” she shows how to mentor kids and teach them the criteria for making thoughtful decisions.

This inspiring presentation addresses empathy, boundaries, and etiquette that can set children up for a lifetime of success as digital communicators. You’ll learn what it’s like for children to grow up in a world where school experiences, family life, and friendships are all shaped by digital connection—and how you can share your own lifetime of social wisdom to mentor children to become the best people they can be.

Parents, students, educators, and community members welcome! Free admission & light refreshments.

LLESD Parent Education Series events are sponsored by Las Lomitas PTA, La Entrada PTA, and Las Lomitas Elementary School District.
