Parenting and Technology in a Pandemic

Digital technology, its pervasiveness in our lives, its impact on how we think and remember, its central role in mediating our relationships, has been a growing concern for parents navigating raising children in a rapidly changing landscape. Physical distancing, brought on by the global COVID-19 pandemic, has accelerated the use of these technologies, with classes going virtual and social activities moved online.  How will this collective leap to functioning virtually affect our children’s lives, ability to learn and to relate to others?  How can parents and caregivers, many who are now working from home, negotiate these new demands while maintaining boundaries and balance in their kids’ and their own digital lives?

Stephen Balkam, Founder and CEO of the Family Online Safety Institute, will be in conversation with Vivian Schiller, Executive Director of Aspen Digital.
