How to Talk and Navigate the Internet With Your Kids, Wednesday, April 17

You are invited to an interactive conversation about “Teaching and Guiding Digital Decision Making”

Date: Wednesday, April 17, 2019

Time: 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Location: Chamberlin Library

 

Dear Families,

As technology becomes more prevalent in our world, Chamberlin is making a priority to teach and inform our students appropriate, respectful and responsible digital citizenship and leadership behaviors.  

Over the past few months, all fourth grade students have been studying digital citizenship, healthy online relationships, safety online, and learning to research safely in the library.  Fifth graders participated in this program during their fourth grade year and have had lessons on evaluation of websites and the power of words. Third graders will also have specific lessons designed around the digital environment over the next two months.   

We would like to  invite ALL Chamberlin families in an interactive conversation about  Teaching and Guiding Digital Decision Making.  The focus will be on reviewing modern social media themes, providing guidelines for communication and supervision, sharing resources and inviting questions.  

Officer Bri Williamson, our school resource officer,  Sharon Davis, Chamberlin School clinician, and librarian, Cally Flickinger, will facilitate this interactive evening.  We will also have a few UVM students participating in the discussion. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Cally Flickinger at cflickinger@sbschools.net or Holly Rouelle at hrouelle@sbschools.net .  

We look forward to having you join us in this increasingly important conversation about student safety and participation with the Internet and world wide resources.  Yummy snacks will be served and a raffle for a book on Internet Safety.

 

Sincerely,

 

Holly Rouelle             Cally Flickinger
