Special Topic: Kids & Technology presented by Carl Hooker of EISD

As a parent today, there is a lot of fear around what our kids are exposed to when it comes to technology. What with smart homes, social media, screen time, data privacy, and other technology we don’t even know about, it might make you want to throw your hands up and run to a non-WiFi cabin in the woods!

In this talk, we’ll address those fears head-on as well as look at trends and strategies around the technology that’s out there. You’ll leave this talk feeling a little less fearful and more empowered.

Carl Hooker is the Director of Innovative and Digital Learning at Eanes Innovative School District.

Westbank Libraries’ Education Conversations touches upon topics in education, with an emphasis on the psychology that should inform how we approach education. Participants engage in lively discussions on the topic, and we encourage educators and parents to attend to offer multiple perspectives and voices. This program, which focuses on K-12 education, offers a speaker series on the second Thursday of each month and a book club on the last Thursday of each month. Occasional documentary screenings will be announced. All events are at Laura’s Library at 6pm. The group is facilitated by Antonio Buehler, founder of Abrome
