Speaking for Beverly Hills Unified School District Tonight!
Posted Oct 08 2009 10:00pm
If you are a parent of the Beverly Hills Unified School District, please feel free to come tonight. It is free and I will be discussing:
Kids and Teens Online
Helping parents, digital immigrants, understand, relate to and keep up with digital natives, teens, is essential to maintaining the parent child relationship in the 21st century.
In this talk, Vanessa delves into the tricky topics that teens, tweens and even toddlers get into online while searching for videos on Youtube, creating their first email and taking a turn in Twitter.
We also understand that every child is at different levels and comes into their ‘virtual adulthood’ at different paces and times. This talk covers all of the basics as well as prepares parents and teachers for what to expect in the late teen years.
Virtual Dating and Friends
College Applications and the Online World
Spam vs Spim
YouTube and Twitter
Hear about the virtual world from a REAL digital native, not from an expert looking down. Vanessa checks her Facebook about 45 times per day…just like your kids! Find out why teens are using social networks not just how. What is the real meaning of a Facebook poke? Or a digital kiss? …find out at this this talk!
