PRLog - Jun. 1, 2012 - This year’s inaugural Digital Family Summit ( held in Philadelphia June 29-July 1), includes over 20 sessions where teens and their families can learn about all aspects of blogging and digital media creation. The sessions include hands-on workshops, inspirational keynotes by prominent blogging teens, parents, and internet experts, plus panel discussions about some hot-button topics for parents and teens alike.

“There’s something for everyone,” said Stephanie Schwab, one of the organizers of the summit. “Whether you are an experienced blogger and Twitterer or you can’t tell Facebook from Foursquare, we are confident that everybody will be able to walk away from the conference inspired and ready to start creating.”

A sampling of the sessions includes:
