Thursday, March 16 • 2:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m. EDT

Embrace Your Role as a Media Mentor

A new 21st century role has emerged: the media mentor. Media mentors are guides to navigate the digital age. They support children and families in their decisions around media use.

Why do media mentors matter? Tune into ACM's upcoming webinar to find out. You'll learn what this role entails, and how children's museum staff are positioned to be media mentors for the children and families who visit.

What you'll take away from this webinar:

  • Messages that empower parents to understand how children learn (and how technology can be part of that)
  • Digital tools that improve family engagement in museums
  • Strategies that build relationships through the use of technology
  • Discussion questions to use with your team about media mentorship

You'll also learn how digital age family engagement can:
