Parents and educators are keenly interested in the prevalence of technology in children’s lives. So quickly have devices and screens entered the scene, and without our understanding or permission. We can decide how, when, and where technology is used in education and in our homes.

Waldorf education seeks to be real about our times and prepare students for the future, but not at the expense of a childhood full of lively imaginative play, hands-on experience, or face to face relationships.

How can technology be an aid, and how is it a hindrance?

Parents, grandparents, caregivers, friends and family of our community are invited to join us for a thought-provoking presentation and important discussion about technology as a tool, and ways of becoming awake and active in our decisions about social media, video games, screens, streaming, etc.

This discussion is not just for parents of young children! Parents of teens and tweens, please bring your voices and experience.
