Education is the first step in keeping our kids safer in this technology-driven world. Technology is only a tool, we can determine its function and value because it's a conscious choice to do so. Research has shown, however, that without good digital literacy education, it becomes more challenging for students to make the right online choices. This presentation is designed to provide students with proactive reflective online critical thinking and decision making strategies, that youth can immediately put to good use. Knowledge and the understanding and application of that knowledge is power. Our presentation provides the knowledge, information, and empowerment, based on academically peer-reviewed research, case studies that tweens, teens, and young adults need to know. In addition, we bring our first-hand experiences in helping students, parents, and educators with some of the challenges students we have helped faced. The goal of our program; to educate students on how to be safer, more digitally literate, savvy, and resilient while participating in the online world. To date, over 450 schools and hundreds of thousands of students (and growing) in the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Oregon State, and Washington State have heard our very unique and empowering message. Bring The White Hatter in to present and experience why students, teachers, principals, parents and law enforcement internationally have all agreed, that our program is one of the best they have heard on the topics of Internet/Social Media Safety and digital citizenship for this age group.
We love the fact that we are disrupting how social media safety and digital literacy has traditionally been presented in schools, which has garnered us some critics. Our approach to sharing our information on this topic is different and very current, when compared to others in our industry, something that we are very proud of, and why our programs have received international acclaim and 5 awards. We love what we do, and how we do it!
