Helping Parents Guide Kids’ Media Use

As K-12 schools integrate technology, helping parents guide kids’ media use is more important than ever. But what makes for effective parent engagement around media and technology? (Hint: it’s not a school assembly held once a year.) Ongoing parent engagement is an essential piece of building a positive culture of digital citizenship in schools. In this panel, hear from schools, districts, and nonprofits about what effective parent engagement looks like, how schools can address the unique needs of caregivers in their communities, and co-engagement ideas where media brings parents and kids together.
