This new Safety Council workshop is for ages 10 to 13 and their parents. The internet is a powerful tool used by young people for everything from homework to games to social media such as Twitter and Instagram.
With over a billion users on Facebook alone, it is important for young users to understand the risks and responsibilities that go along with being connected to others online.
The workshop will include age appropriate discussion about the information young people put online:
- * How it is shared
- * Who can see it
- * Who is interested in it
- * How long it is available online
- * Privacy policies
- * How to change settings for as much protection as possible
- * Electronic Etiquette
- The class is also designed to show how important it is to think carefully before posting things online for everyone else to see. Parents attend the last 30 minutes for a demonstration of what their children have learned.
