Pre-teens and positive technology use: webinar 2

Children might start using technology and digital media differently as they move towards the teenage years. To help your child maintain a healthy relationship with technology in these 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 relates to 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 healthy technology use.

When: Tuesday 19 February 2019, 8 pm AEDT
