Reading, writing, arithmetic, and...how to mute yourself on a Zoom call? The remote and hybrid classroom settings of this school year has made tech-savviness and digital responsibility (and patience!) key skills for students and their grown ups. Parents especially have had to expand their own technical expertise, taking on the additional roles of teacher, student, and on-demand IT professional in their households. Our Raising Curious Learners hosts Ann and Elizabeth virtually tapped CyberWise founder Diana Graber to help address the concerns parents may be dealing with during the pandemic and explain how we can all be smart, productive, ethical, and empowered digital citizens in this ever-evolving space. They also discuss her vision for the post-COVID world in which technology usage can be shaped by curiosity and creativity, rather than just necessity.
