Digital Citizenship

Your child is taking part in classroom lessons from Common Sense Education’s K–12 Digital Citizenship Curriculum, designed to educate and guide young people to harness the power of the Internet and digital tools so they can become safe, responsible, and respectful digital citizens.

Technology can consume our lives if we allow it. Take a look at these videos for how to address this with your children.

Parent Evening - Digital Citizenship

Next event - coming week of November 19, 2017

The majority of students have access to technology at home, either personal or shared devices. Parents face new challenges with managing devices and time spent in front of screens. Kids face new challenges learning how to interact with their peers using social media and technology in general.

We are hosting a parent discussion evening focusing on these two important topics: screen time for students and a form of bullying utilizing technology.

Join us on Tuesday, January 16th from 5:30 - 6:30 PM to discuss and learn more. The event is open for all EMS Doha parents.
