Parent Presentations and Workshop

      1. Our Parent Media Education Program gives parents expert advice and practical guidance about helping guide their kids’ digital lives. We offer several choices for presentations: a one (1) hour daytime overview ($750) of today’s digital media landscape — what’s new about it and how it has influenced the way kids learn, socialize, and play — for better and for worse; and a one and a half (1 1⁄2) hour evening more in-depth overview ($1000) with more time for questions and answers. In addition, we offer customized workshops that deal with specific issues and hands-on training for parents (e.g. All a parent needs to know about Facebook). Independent School members receive a 20% discount.
