Description

The Mobile Learning Mindset series offers practical knowledge and strategies for successful implementation of K–12 1:1 initiatives and BYOD programs. This six-book collection provides district leaders, principals, teachers, IT staff, educational coaches and parents with the information they need to make any mobile learning program a success.


 

A major part of any 1:1 initiative is keeping parents informed on the ins and outs of having mobile devices around the home. Part of the disruptive effect mobile devices have on learn also impacts home life. The Parent’s Guide to Supporting Digital Age Learners offers insight and guidance for parents facing some of the new challenges that mobile devices can bring into the household, including concerns about screen time, cyberbullying and digital footprints.


 

The book offers advice, tools and scenarios parents can use with their children to



  • maintain digital wellness

  • understand how to use social media safely and respectfully

  • establish household guidelines.


 

When parents are informed and given resources to support the initiative from home, there’s a momentous shift in perception of how the device should be used, transforming it from a dangerous device that needs to be
monitored or taken away to a tool that can be leveraged to improve learning.
