Sheparding the Hearts of Digital Natives
As a resource to help parents disciple their children, Orangewood’s leaders and I would like to invite you to join us for a weekly conversation as we discuss, Shepherding the Hearts of Digital Natives. This learning opportunity will help us explore the state of digital life around us, how we can strengthen our family to be more tech-wise, and address some of the common challenges of digital content and its constant connectivity in our lives. This learning opportunity will be presented over a five-week period starting on Tuesday, April 20th for 6th-12th parents and Thursday, April 22nd for K4-5th parents. If you have children in each division, please choose the division that would benefit your family the most. The content is the same; however, the conversations are tailored to the age of those students.
Each session will be one hour, held on our campuses, and provide parents with practical tools to help families navigate technology topics within their home. Our hope is that you will join us for all five weeks as each session’s content builds on itself. However, the team and I understand the busy schedules of parents. As seats will be limited for these first two series, we plan to offer these sessions again in the fall with some more flexible options for working parents.
