Do you want to learn more about fostering positive communication about technology with your elementary-school child?

On Wednesday, January 16, 2019 from 7:00 PM-8:30 PM, Dr. Jill Walsh is coming to talk to our Broadmeadow community.

Dr. Walsh will help us to be proactive instead of reactive in supporting our children's technology use. She will explain the most common platforms used by young children and outline the landscape of tween digital media use so that we know where our children are headed. During this discussion, our community will learn practical tips for conversations and strategies parents can employ around important technology topics like:
  • screen time
  • navigating the first phone
  • supporting friendships in their digital social worlds,
  • impacts on psychosocial well-being
  • privacy
Dr. Walsh is a researcher and lecturer at Boston University, and an advocate for our children. She studies their world, learns from their perspective, and translates that on a global scale to help close the generational gap so that parents and educators are able to make informed decisions around the digital, social and emotional health of our kids.

This lecture is FREE to the entire Broadmeadow community!
