During this event you’ll learn about the importance of digital safety and the Smart Talk, an interactive website created by National PTA and LifeLock, a Symantec company, to help families and kids talk about using digital devices responsibly and decide a few important questions together, like: What are they allowed to post on social media? What should their privacy settings be and what apps can they download? How much screen time is ok? Once those questions have been answered, a custom agreement is created, which can be printed and signed so that all of the ground rules are easily remembered by everyone.
