Parent University: Technology, Internet Safety and Chromebook Navigation

Atkinson school recently held its Parent University, where Lead Teachers discussed ways parents can proactively monitor their child’s use of the Chromebook. There was information given about child friendly academic sites that students can be using. The teachers explained how they integrate the Chromebook into their classroom lessons and provided examples of student success. Other topics of conversation were detecting warning signs of what to look out for in cases of cyberbullying and ways to bridge their concerns to the school. Parents also had the opportunity to have their questions answered by teachers and by each other.
