Hacking Kids: How to Raise a Digital Native

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Saturday 12th March, 2011

5:00pm to 6:00pm (CST)

The Internet and mobile phones have created a new realm of possibilities, and distractions, for parents. Dads, and other non-birthing child care providers, face new challenges in negotiating the digital age. The panel will build on the lessons and tales emerging from NuevoDads, a private listserv of 50-60 techie fathers, and a few mothers.
The panel will:
- create a safe space for peers to discuss a multitude of parenting issues
- create a network for both parenting and non-parenting needs
- explore the changes from the past, when being a dad was a fan isolated task.

LEVEL: Beginner
