The Media Awareness Network (MNet) has released "e-Parenting Tutorial: Keeping up with your kids’ online activities", (http://www.media-awareness.ca/eparent/english/) an online resource to help parents better understand and become actively involved in their children’s online lives.
Made possible through financial contributions from Inukshuk Learning Plan Fund and Bell, this engaging interactive tool helps parents increase their awareness of the ways that children and teens are using the Internet for learning, entertainment and socializing, and the issues they may be encountering along the way. Through the exploration of five key themes – homework, cyberbullying, marketing, online relationships and excessive use – parents can develop the knowledge and skills they need to help their children navigate the Internet safely, wisely and responsibly.
The e-Parenting Tutorial development and promotion partners are the Alberta School Councils’ Association, The Alberta Library and the Canadian Home and School Federation.
