One word to describe “Camp iPad for Parents”

Many interested parents attended the second Camp iPad for Parents event at Coal Ridge Middle School on April 23rd.

Parents learned tips and tricks, how to adjust settings on an iPad to their liking, visited with teachers and students, discussed “wonderings” and concerns with fellow parents and educators, and enjoyed meeting parents from around the district.

We discussed screen time, organization, assignments, and several other aspects of modern student life.
