FOSI Launches Teach Parents Tech Video Series
Yesterday on the first day of the 2012 FOSI Annual Conference, we launched Teach Parents Tech - an exciting new video series for parents!
On A Platform for Good, FOSI's newest initiative, we polled parents on their top technology concerns, and now the results are in. The videos are based on what real parents told us they wanted to know more about - from social media and apps to privacy settings.
Take a look at our new Teach Parents Tech videos on A Platform for Good!
The best part about these videos: the teens are the ones doing the teaching. The videos feature teens talking to parents about current technology topics and services.
But parents won't only be interacting with the teens on-screen. Teach Parents Tech also gives them the opportunity to connect with their own teens and other parents about what they've learned!
The feature allows parents to comment and discuss the videos, share their knowledge on social media or via email, and have conversations with their own teens about what they've seen. And, after completing any one of these actions, parents will be able to award themselves a virtual badge.
Watch and share our videos and get your virtual Teach Parents badge today!
Look for more updates from this year's conference in the coming weeks and follow #fosi2012 for the latest news from the event.
