La Grange library hosts expert to help parents learn the language of 'digital natives'
LA GRANGE – Devorah Heitner was teaching courses on kids and technology at Northwestern and DePaul universities when it hit her that she might have the wrong audience.
"I just realized that parents needed this information more than 18 to 22-year-old college students," Heitner said.
Heitner then started holding workshops and consulting schools and families on "Raising Your Digital Native," the title of an e-handbook she's writing. On Sept. 24, Heitner presented to parents at the La Grange Public Library. She addressed topics such as monitoring kids' technology use, preparing kids to have a cell phone and asking them about their expectations when they post a photo of themselves on Facebook.
