Pre-teens and positive technology use: webinar
As your child moves towards the teenage years, their use of technology will change. In these years, technology can help your child learn and keep in touch with friends and family. At the same time, you might want to set limits on your child’s technology use to avoid risks like cyberbullying and pornography.
To help your child maintain a healthy relationship with technology in the teenage years, it’s a good idea to lay the foundations early. If your child is aged 9-12 years, this webinar can give you the knowledge you need to get started.
This webinar looks at:
- your child’s developmental stage and how it affects technology use
- benefits of technology
- limits and consequences in relation to technology use
- social media readiness
- intentional and unintentional access to online pornography
- your role in modelling technology use.
