Serving as a companion guide to Understanding i-KIDS,
this workbook begins with an introduction to the digital village—a new environment that is familiar to youth but foreign to adults. Not all parents are prepared to meet the challenge of new technologies as the digital world evolves.
Using the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) model, author Doris Settles covers the eight critical keys for navigating digital society:
- Law and Order
- Rights and Responsibilities
- Health and Wellness
- Safety and Security
When addressed clearly, these eight keys enable parents—safely and sufficiently—to provide today’s i-KIDS the open doors they need to leave school and enter the world. Each section includes a lesson, recommended reading lists and websites, and suggestions for complementary activities. Blank pages follow each lesson, allowing the student to take notes.
