Social Media Workshop for Parents

Register today! Event is at 6:30pm on January 28.

Presented by the New Westminster Police Department and Parents’ Night Out

Jesse Miller on Digital Citizenship

Learn about social networking and what kids are really doing online.

Kids in 2016 are growing up in a digital age, growing up in a wired world we could never have imagined during our own high school years. The Internet and smartphones place an incredibly powerful set of resources at their fingertips, allowing them to communicate, entertain and inform themselves anytime and anyplace. Mobile technology has fundamentally altered the way teens socialize with friends, handle dating, do their schoolwork, and communicate with family members.

The vast opportunities offered by these technologies come with a set of challenges and responsibilities. How can we teach kids to put technology to use in ways that are creative and productive, but also safe and responsible? The good news is that you can – and should – lay the groundwork for good judgment, resilience and open communication.

During Jesse Miller’s workshop you will gain a better understanding of how kids are using social media. You will also learn how to provide kids with tips and tools they can use to help them minimize negative experiences and maximize the positive opportunities that social media has to offer.
