Pointers For Parents Five Ways To Help Your Child Become A Responsible Digital Citizen by Yalda T. Uhls, M.B.A., Ph.D. UCLA, Children's Digital Media Center@LA, Adjunct Professor, Common Sense Media, youth development expert (NAPS)--Why is "Dot." a new orig- inal animated series on Sprout from In- dustrial Brothers in association with The Jim Henson Company and the Canadi- an Broadcasting Corporation, so timely and important? In 2017, 10 years after the iPhone was introduced, mobile tech- nology has rapidly changed the way we interact with media. Children as young as 2 use tablets and phones swiping, tapping and viewing to gain access to content. For today's youngest digital na- tives, digital tools are an integral part of their lives, used in fluid ways to explore their worlds. Technology is not SEPA- RATE but instead a PART of their lives, an Important tool that helps them play, learn, socialize and engage. Mobile interactive apps and games provide ample opportunities for children to move their bodies, learn, create digital masterpieces and explore everything and anything that captures their imagination. At the same time, in today's 24/7 digital environment, children can use media to make impulsive choices, view material that is not age appropriate or commu- nicate inappropriately. The benefits are great but the risks must be mitigated. When The Jim Henson Company asked me to be an advisor on preschool TV show "Dot." I enthusiastically agreed. The show's creators wanted to embed dig- ital citizenship lessons into each episode to help guide both children and parents to responsibly navigate technology. The hope is that through Dot's ex- periences, children learn to harness the power of this interactive and informa- tional medium in the most productive' and pro-social manner. By starting to teach these digital citizenship skills ear- ly, parents can ensure that their children learn best practices and develop the skills they need to take advantage of the many opportunities that technology and media offer us. Each episode features a learning theme--Making, Digital Citizenship, Critical Thinking, Collaboration and Teamwork, Empathy, and Perspective Taking--and integrates a STEAM (sci- ence, technology, engineering, the arts and math) curriculum. A new cartoon show can help kids enjoy learning how to handle digital media. Micaya Woodrum Micaya is the daughter of Micah and Crystal Woodrum of HiUdale.
