The PTA Connected Be Internet Awesome program is designed to help families establish digital well-being from a young age. It’s most appropriate for elementary school PTAs, but would also be a great program for upper grade PTSAs to host in partnership with other schools in their area for older students to log volunteer hours.
The goal of a Be Internet Awesome Family Workshop is to create an interactive event where families engage with one another in meaningful conversations about raising children in an online world. Using the Be Internet Awesome Family Guides, provided presentations and facilitator guides; your PTA will help parents create a shared understanding of what it means to Be Internet Smart, Alert, Strong, Kind and Brave.
Attendees will also be introduced to free tools, such as Google’s Family Link, that support healthy online habits by providing parents with ways to view their child’s online activity, manage their apps and set limits on screen time.
