With the predicted future changes with technology in society and education, parents and teachers are constantly challenged to help children as early as Pre-K and Kindergarten to prepare for a successful future that will be very different from their own lives.
St. Paul’s School is presenting an opportunity to learn strategies and technology skills to help parents prepare their young children for these changes and how to create an environment where these skills come naturally to them.
This parent education program, “Pre-K and K Parents Prepping for Possibilities,” will be presented on Wednesday, March 25, at 1:30 p.m. in J-204. The program is free of charge and open to the community.
The presenter is Dr. Stephanie Hinshaw Hatten, a District Technology Instructional Specialist specializing in Elementary education and teacher staff development, helping teachers integrate technology into their instruction.
Hatten holds a Doctorate in Educational Leadership with a specialization in Curriculum and Instruction and a Masters in Instructional Technology from UH- Clear Lake.
The mother of four teenagers, she also has presented to parents about internet safety and using technology to bring families closer together. She recently presented a TEDx talk with one of her daughters about their family’s rules of respect for using social media.
