Technology plays an increasingly significant role in our lives and our students' lives. Often our devices play multiple roles, ranging from academics to entertainment. As parents, we may not feel as comfortable with technology as our children and as such feel like we are always a couple steps behind. We hope this page will offer resources to lessen that gap and provide you with the knowledge to better guide your child's interaction with technology.
