Workshop Description:

When it comes to Internet and Social Media Safety, we believe education is the first step in keeping everyone safer in this technology-driven world.  Our presentation is designed to provide participants with pro-active on-line “critical thinking” and “decision making” strategies that they can immediately put to good use.  Knowledge and the understanding and application of that knowledge is power.  Our presentation provides the knowledge and information, based upon academically peer reviewed research, that tweens, teens, young adults, adults, parents need to know to stay safe while participating in the on-line world.

Our programs are not just about Social Media and Internet Safety, they are also about digital literacy and the challenges surrounding privacy (our digital dossier), cyber-bullying, sexting and what all can do now to protect their digital footprints, so that their current on-line activities do not have a negative outcome on future college, university or job opportunities.

To date, over 295,000 students (and growing) and thousands of educators/parents/adults have heard our very unique message.  Administrators, students, educators and parents have all agreed that our presentation, compared to others they have participated in, was top notch and a “must have” program.
