Parents Technology Information

  • Hello Parents
    This page will hopefully help guide you and your child with the technology tools you choose.  I have found one of the most helpful websites to be Common Sense Media. Here is a link that gives Parent and Child reviews of books, movies, video games, apps and more.
    A good place to start is to have a discussion with your children about their use of digital media.  This link is a family media agreement that can be used to help guide a family discussion or you can choose to modify it to fit your family needs.

    Google has a nice selection of Digital Safety Resources, including their Be Internet Awesome curriculum for families and schools.
    There are also kid safe search engines, such as Google Safe Search or Kiddle. Searching through a kid-friendly, filtered site returns much better material with much less chance for materials to be inappropriate. 
    Try this link for some awesome child-appropriate Apps:
    The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children is a great resource for yourself and your children to learn more about internet safety.  (Since this site contains some topics that are more adult in nature, please review any videos before showing them to your child.)
