Cyber Bullying and Internet Safety: Creating Positive Digital Citizenship in Schools

Session Description

Technology and the internet are great learning tools for educators but can be dangerous if students aren’t aware of proper cyber safety strategies to use while online. Cyberbullying and safety issues are not only rampant on social media apps, but can be found on online gaming and chat rooms as well. Review strategies to help youth understand the proper ways of using the internet as a tool versus causing themselves or others harm. Participate in a self-reflection activity reviewing your own online profile to see your impact on others through what you share, comment on, and post in the digital world. As you explore the resources, strategies, and the laws that are in place for online safety, identity theft, and internet crimes against children you will gain skills to promote positive digital citizenship in the school and home.
