FCC Schedules Sept. 8 Digital Back-to-School Primer

Publish date:

The FCC will hold a back-to-school forum on the "the opportunities and challenges" of technology use by teens in a digital world, and says it plans future events targeted at other age groups.

The Sept. 8 event will include FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski and representatives from MTV and Common Sense Media (Genachowski is a founding board member), among others.

To get the conversation started, the commission has set up a crowd-sourcing site to tee up "burning questions" from parentss.

It is the second year the FCC has held a digital back-to-school event.
