SD43 parents get help with crossing the digital divide

What makes your kids "click?"

That's the question parents will get the answer to during an informative presentation about how children engage with the internet and what parents can do to stay involved and informed.

The presenter for this seminar presented by the District 43 Parent Advisory Council, is Dave Sands, a former Castle Park principal and current SD43 Energy Manager, who has a masters degree in technology and curriculum from SFU. Sands will be discussing how parents are on the outside looking in on the new digital world while children are the experts. He understands that parents are often frustrated, isolated and unsure of what this new culture is all about.

Sands will help parents understand internet safety and get some ideas for connecting with children in new and exciting ways. Other topics include, how can parents can monitor a child's use of technology and how to prevent cyber bullying.

The free presentation, called Participating and Engaging in a Digital World, takes place from 7-9 p.m. Monday, April 30 in the Gallery Room at Winslow Centre, 1100 Winslow Ave., Coquitlam.

Register before April 26 via email to or call Sandy at 604-939-3690. (Please provide your name and phone number.)

Child minding is not available for this presentation.
