The ENSWaP Hour 5
Developing an Inner Compass to Navigate in the Digital World
The world we and our children live in is becoming increasingly dependent on digital media and artificial intelligence. The possibilities seem infinite and with it comes a multifaceted pallet of benefits and risks. As parents and educators, we want our children to be able to navigate this vast and deep ocean with a steady hand on the helm and an inner compass to hold the course. How can we as adults help our children from early on to develop the foundational capacities that are essential to master these new technologies and use them in a creative and meaningful way?
