PA Speaker Series: Devorah Heitner, Screenwise: Helping Kids Thrive (and Survive) in Their Digital World, Wednesday, October 11, 7–8:45 p.m., Gordon Parks Assembly Hall
If you are raising kids, you are raising "Digital Natives." Come here expert, author, and consultant Devorah Heitner.
RSVP's are highly encouraged.
In her book, Screenwise, Ms. Heitner offers an encouraging perspective on how to thoughtfully guide kids in the digital age. Many parents and educators worry that kids are addicted, detached, or distracted because of their digital devices. Digital citizenship expert Devorah Heitner, however, believes that technology offers huge potential to our children—if parents help them.
Ms. Heitner founded Raising Digital Natives to serve as a resource for schools and organizations wishing to cultivate a culture of responsible digital citizenship. She has a PhD in Media/Technology and Society from Northwestern University and has taught at DePaul University and Northwestern University.
This event is free and for adults only.
