The WCPA is thrilled to have Kerry Gallagher join us for an evening presentation on important considerations for raising children in the digital age.
Kerry Gallagher is a Digital Learning Specialist at St. John’s Prep in Danvers, MA. She’s also the Director of K-12 Education for ConnectSafely.org, an EdSurge Columnist, and an active blogger. Kerry’s passions and the focus of her work include empowering teachers, students and parents to learn with digital tools and resources and educating school communities about both the positive power and privacy concerns that come with social media use. Trained as both a teacher and attorney, she understands that a combination of effective pedagogy, policy, school culture, and global connections are necessary to make meaningful progress that puts children first. Kerry has experience as a classroom teacher, education trainer, writer, TEDx and keynote speaker, and policy advocate.
At this forum, Kerry will discuss key research findings about both the upsides and downsides of technology's impact on children's growth and development. She will also explore the role of parents and educators in navigating this space, sharing best practices and concrete strategies for a healthy and thoughtful approach to technology at school, home, and work.
