An evening looking at raising children and young people in a digital age is planned in Halifax on Monday 13th June.
The evening will help parents, teachers, grand-parents and youth workers to give young people the equipment they need to get the best out of new technology and to avoid the dangers.
Dr Bex Lewis, one of the UK's leading experts on new technology, who is leading the night comments, "Twitter, Facebook, blogging, chat rooms, email, the internet and beyond - for most parents, teachers and youth workers, getting to grips with new technology is a bit of a challenge. But keeping children safe is a much bigger one. As technology changes, and young people grasp it faster than the older generations do, it can be a real struggle to know what to do to help, equip and defend."
The evening, organised by Christian Initiative in Calderdale Schools, is to be held at The King's Centre on Park Road, Halifax and starts at 7pm. Booking is essential and this can be done online at www.cicscalderdale.org.uk/digitalage or firstname.lastname@example.org . The evening is free with a suggested donation of £5.00 payable on the night.
