Are young people as tech savvy as they seem (or think they are)? Are they in control of the technology in their pocket and/or on their desks? Do they understand and are looking after their digital footprints? And how is their digital lifestyle changing they ways in which they live, learn and engage with the world around them?

AmCham's Education Committee invites you to join us on April 11, 2019, from 8:00 – 9:30am as we host a panel discussion about supporting our children and teens in the digital present, and future! Our panel of experts will provide insights and information that will help attendees understand how to support children in creating healthy and productive relationships with technology; understand and recognize appropriate (and inappropriate) engagement with technology at different ages; and understand how to help children balance opportunities vs. risks. This presentation will provide an opportunity to stop and review the digital world in which we all live. Reflecting on how adults engage with technology and how children and teens experience it, we will learn about how to effectively address digital literacy and safety with our children.

In response to AmCham member feedback and also the issues raised in the movie Angst, AmCham's Education Committee is hosting a series of events focused on the stresses and strains of being a child in the 21st century and on what we can do as parents to support healthy development in an age of uncertainty. The next event in the series will take place on May 30 (8:00 – 9:30am) when we discuss Overcoming Risk Aversion in an Age of Uncertainty. Topics covered will include the most important skills for future success; the importance of soft skills vs. hard skills; and the elements of risk manifested in Hong Kong.

First 15-20 minutes is for networking
