Edinburgh: Raising Children in a Digital Age – Evening Event

June 4, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

£5.97

Evening programme runs from 7-9pm, and includes coffee and cake from 6.45pm

Digital technology, social media and online gaming are now a universal part of childhood. But are you worried about what your children might be doing online? What they might come across by accident? Or who might try to contact them through Facebook or Twitter?

Whether you’re involved in children’s ministry, a parent, grandparent, or carer, you will want children to get the most out of new technology. But how do you tread the tightrope of keeping them safe online, whilst enabling them to seize and benefit from the wealth of opportunities on offer? This event will give you the chance to find some answers.

Dr Bex Lewis is keen to ensure that children are able to seize, celebrate and enjoy the wealth of opportunities offered by the Internet, Twitter, Facebook, blogging and other new technology  safely.

In this lively and engaging session she will draw upon her new book Raising Children in a Digital Age, providing an overview of the digital spaces, and practical tips, advice and information to give you confidence to keep your children safe online. Internet scare stories and distorted statistics will be put in context as clear and sensible guidelines are provided, and suggestions for conversation starters highlighted. Copies of her book will be available to buy.
