Social Media Awareness

Posted On Monday October 04, 2021

As a parent, you lead the charge as a digital role model. Help your child develop a strong digital citizenship foundation while reminding them that their digital tattoo reflects their real and online selves. Parents have an important role to play in providing support and guidance during critical periods. We invite you to attend a virtual meeting hosted by SD73 on Oct. 19, 2021 to help ensure your child’s online safety. 

‘Social Media Awareness, Digital Citizenship, and Cyberbullying’ is presented by Safer Schools Together, a company working to help students across North America to minimize and manage risks to students. 

Your child may encounter situations that will challenge their independence, including cyberbullying, cyber-exclusion, the dangers of anonymity, privacy, sharing intimate images, and inappropriate websites. During this session, you will learn the important role parents play in providing support and guidance as your child becomes a digital citizen. This presentation will focus on all things digital. Recommendations for family rules and parental controls will be outlined, as well as a snapshot of current trends and concerning apps to equip you in your digital parenting strategy. This includes: 

• Social Media Update - The most current apps and trends in your children’s social media lives  

• Digital Parenting Strategy - How to have important conversations with your child around social media safety including information about sextortion and online recruitment 

 • Digital Footprint and Reputation - With their future approaching, recruiters and employers are taking note - What will they find?  

• Family Tech Plan - Recommendations for family guidelines and parental controls 

This will be a 90-minute presentation, followed by a 30-minute Q&A session. 

This presentation is being offered virtually as a ZOOM meeting, on Tuesday, Oct. 19, 2021 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM.
