Saturday, June 7, 10 a.m. – Noon, Gore Hall 103
Education Technology faculty and staff will provide an interactive program for parents and educators interested in learning about educational iPad/tablet apps, Internet safety and establishing parental controls. Two sessions:
Session 1: iPad Apps for Education (10 a.m.- 11a.m.)
In this workshop, we’ll take a look at some of the educational apps available for the iPad. We will also look at iPad’s more useful parental controls to help ensure that your child gets the most out of their screen time.
Session 2: Online Safety for Children (11 a.m.- noon)
Children access online content with mobile phones, tablets, and computers in school, at home, and everywhere in between. How do you protect them online? We will explore your child’s online footprint, protecting your child’s information, social media, cyberbullying and parental controls to keep your child safe.
