Workshop 3

Using the Internet to Access Vital Family Resources

 

Workshop 3 begins with a review of the critical content presented in Workshops 1 and 2.  Parents are introduced to a variety of online tools and resources to help their child, their family and themselves.  Digital Citizenship situations and concerns are reviewed, and parents are provided time to identify their needs concerning technology and share techniques for addressing them.  Again, time is allowed for hands-on work with computers and Internet searches.  During the workshop, facilitators also encourage parent discussions on ways they can continue to work together with the school staff to achieve improved student outcomes and model good digital citizenship.
