Join us for a "Meeting with Michael" on Raising Kids in a Digital World: Oct.16

We invite our Middle School families (Grades 6-8) to join us on October 16 at 1:45 p.m. in the Dragon's Den in the upper level of Hubbard Hall as Head of School Michael Turner and Director of Technology David Grossman facilitate a discussion on raising kids in a digital world. 
The digital world that our kids are learning and growing up in is incredibly exciting. Through technology, kids have access to new tools, to an incredible range of resources, and to stimulating opportunities to participate in novel ways. At the same time, parenting kids who are immersed in so many different technologies and apps can be daunting. How do parents put boundaries around technology use? What are tips to help parents manage screen time? How can parents encourage good digital citizenship and help kids understand short and long-term implications of digital footprints? We will also share information on how St M is teaching digital citizenship aligned with our DRAGONS values.
