Outstanding Mothers' Gathering Presents - Raising Responsible, Savvy ‘Digital Natives’

And Protecting Our Children from the 

Dangers of the Internet age

In 2001, U.S. author Marc Prensky coined the term “digital native” to describe a new generation brought up during the digital age.  Over a decade later, we find technology moving at an astounding pace, and as a result parenting in a digital world is new terrain for which parents need tools to handle. 

New research is just emerging on this topic, and parents need to be aware of the threats and opportunities that we are faced with in raising the next generation.  Understanding the threat that the internet poses to our children and how to handle them (bullying, blackmailing, sexting, appropriate monitoring, digital footprints) as well as the vast opportunities that technology presents in terms of learning and development, are just some of the topics that we will discuss with this engaging and informative panel. 

OMG has assembled some of LA's top Tech Experts to discuss this ever evolving topic that affects every family.
