Sri Nurhayati, Agus H. Noor, Safuri Musa, Reny Jabar, Wamaungo J. Abdu


This study aims to describe how a digital literacy workshop model is ideal for parents in the fourth industrial era. The study used a descriptive qualitative method. The data collection techniques used were interviews, observation, and literature study. The research was conducted at Cibeureum, in the South Cimahi Subdistrict, in Indonesia. The research subjects consisted of five parents with children aged 7 to 16 years old. The findings of this study indicate that knowledge, understanding, and skills in using media, especially social media, among parents are still lacking. Hence, leading to inadequate parental supervision of children's activities on social media within the digital age and now the fourth industrial era, which comes with a lot of challenges. The present study established a digital literacy workshop model for parents that may be appropriate through a combination of theory and practice, as well as the mentorship of parents in the guidance of their children within this era of the fourth industrial revolution. The workshop model helps to increase the knowledge and ability of parents in using social media and also helps to improve parental supervision of children in using other forms of technology.
