Description: Join Diana Graber, co-founder of Cyberwise and founder of Cyber Civics for “Fostering a Child’s Full Potential in a Screen-Filled World.” This engaging presentation will cover the following:

  • What skills do kids need most to thrive today, both online and off? Surprisingly, experts agree that the most important digital skills are not technical skills, but social and behavioral skills. Find out how schools guided by the Core Principles of Public Waldorf Education already expertly teach these skills.
  • See an overview of how media affects kids at all ages and stages, from birth through 18 years of age. We’ll take a look at the latest research, current guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics, and more.
  • Instead of saying “no tech, think “slow tech”! Learn about the “Slow Tech Media Diet” instituted at Journey School. Receive guidelines on developmentally-appropriate integration of technology for children.
  • Learn how Cyber Civics helps schools extend what they are already teaching (social and behavioral skills) into the digital world. Learn about the three-year program that helps students become ethical, thoughtful, and competent digital citizens.
  • Participate in hands-on Cyber Civics lessons. Learn how parents can be involved in this program too.
  • Discussion and questions.
