Digital kids and analog parents: Talking with parents about tech

Sarah Eaton facilitator presenter speaker education technology Calgary CanadaTonight I’m co-facilitating a session for the Community Assets for Education (CAFE) Institute. We are talking to a group of parents at a local elementary school about strength-based education and learning. My topic is technology. Our conversation with parents will revolve around 3 main questions:

  • What does technology mean to you?
  • How do you see technology as an asset for your child?
  • How are you already supporting your child’s technology skills?

Here are some of the resources we are sharing:

Kids write more, gain ease with language, through texting

Young Canadians in a Wired World

Can technology exploit our many ways of knowing – by Howard Garndner

Multimedia and Multiple Intelligences – by Shirley Veenema and Howard Gardner

The GoodWork Project – Developing Minds & Digital Media

Do you know parents who are torn about technology and its impact on their child’s education? What resources or insights do you have to share?
