Developing Digital Resiliency

 

Our school Counselors and Library Information Specialist invited all Basilica School of Saint Mary parents to attend an event on February 19, 2020, addressing the topic of “Developing Digital Resiliency.” This event is part of a series designed to provide support and education to our parents as they navigate the ever-changing landscape of technology, trying to find a "road map" and seeking to maintain a healthy balance with our children and within our families. 

Dr. Michael Horne, Director of Clinical Services for Catholic Charities at the Diocese of Arlington, was our guest speaker. He recommended several apps that can help parents to monitor their children's activity. (Click on the names of the software to view their websites.)
