A new school year has begun, and the smell of fresh tech is in the air! Many students have already received their school-issued iPad or notebook. For many parents, this is uncharted territory.
To help families set healthy boundaries for screen time, we are hosting a workshop this month, “Gadget Management for Parents.” It will be on Wednesday, September 20 from 6:30-8 p.m. We will explore parental controls for Apple and Android devices and learn about tools to evaluate apps and other media. To register, please call (573) 443-3161.
If this program doesn’t jive with your schedule, don’t forget that the library offers free online technology training through Lynda.com. You can learn more about parental restrictions by taking “iOS 10: iPhone and iPad Essential Training” or “Android Tips and Tricks. “
