Internet Safety and Digital Literacy Education 101 For Parents

 

Helping Parents To Proactively Understand The Enabling Power Of Digital Technology and Mobile Communications, But Also How To Mitigate The Sometimes UnIntended Consequences Of High Risk/Undesirable Online Behaviour 

 

It has been estimated that there are approximately 3 billion people online, a large segment of which are children, tweens, teens, and young adults. In fact, mobile communications have now outnumbered both desktop and laptop computers as the number one way that our kids are connecting online.  As the Internet continues to grow in popularity, we are depending upon it at an increasing rate to conduct everyday life, which also includes the sharing of private and at times very sensitive information about ourselves with others on-line knowingly, and at times unknowingly. Many who are now online use the Internet for communication, education, entertainment, research, socializing, business and commerce. There is no doubt that the Internet and Social Media have facilitated important positive connections and amazing accomplishments amongst our youth. In fact, teens are the primary producers of web content and want to share their ideas, thoughts, and pictures with others online.  It is a reality, however, that the Internet (just like the real world) has also created an online virtual environment where thieves, vandals, conartists, and in rare cases sexual predators, will hunt their prey. Unfortunately, many tweens, teens and young adults who are using the Internet and Social Media, are not always taking the appropriate safety precautions to help mitigate the risks from those who might want to victimize others online for personal gain. Our pro-active multiple award-winning Social Media/Internet Safety and Digital Literacy 101 presentation for schools, will provide the needed information that will help to keep students safer, increase their privacy and protect their online digital footprint.
