Raising Digital Natives with Dr. Devorah Heitner
Posted 12/19/2012 02:04PM

The Catherine Cook School will be hosting our second session with Devorah Heitner, Ph.D., on Wednesday, January 9 from 6:00–8:00 p.m. Dr. Heitner, founder of RaisingDigitalNatives.com, is an educator with more than a dozen years of experience teaching students in such places as the Spertus Museum, the Better Boys Foundation, Street Level Youth Media, Northwestern University, and DePaul University.

At this session, Dr. Heitner will offer suggestions about key media issues to discuss with your child. Are your kids asking for cellphones? Do they download apps you don't recognize? Learn how you can respond to these experiences and more to create a smart tech culture in your family where you lead by example. In addition, learn how your digital native can also mentor you on some of the latest developments! Find creative ways for technology to bring your family together. Though the session will primarily focus on solutions for students in Grades 4-8, parents of children of all ages are welcome and encouraged to attend. An RSVP is requred! Please register at catherinecookschool.org/digitalnatives.

This session will be held in the CCS Gymnasium (map). If you have questions, please email parented@ccookschool.org.
