TECH AND SOCIAL MEDIA WORKSHOP
Using Tablets and Apps With Your Children
This session will help parents get comfortable with their iPads and Android tablets and explore how they can be used to support their children’s learning. Together we will take a close look at access and assistive settings on the mobile devices and try out various educational Apps. Practical tips, resource links and lists of popular Apps will be shared as well.
Our Tech and Social Media workshops are designed to inspire and empower parents to explore and harness the power of digital technology and social media tools to make their families more tech savvy and to support their children’s success in the ever-changing digital world.
Developed for parents who are just starting on their digital journey, the hands-on workshops will focus on introducing new technologies and tools, showcasing their use and benefits as well as potential risks, and providing practical tips and activities to take home. The workshops can be offered together or individually.
