2:00 (Double Session) Cyber-Safe Kids, Cyber-Savvy Teens: Helping Young People Learn to Use the Internet Safely and Responsibly – FERPA and How It Impacts Schools.
We must expect that young people will post personal information online and will interact wih a wide range of people ~ including “online strangers.” There are risks associated with these activities. There are also risks associated wth crossing a busy street. We don’t tell children never to cross streets. We hold their hand when they are young ~ then we teach them how to do so safely and responsibly! As our young people are becoming involved in the global interactive Internet community, it is important for educatros to ensure they have the knowledge, skills and values to do so safely and responsibly. This presentation will focus on materials available for students, professional development and resources for parent education. The presentation will give you practical suggestions that will incoporate insight from research on youth risk online and effective risk prevention. Presenter: Nancy Willard, the executive director of the Center for Safe and Responsible Internet Use, is a nationally recognized authority on issues related to the safe and responsible use of the Internet.Web address: http://www.cyberbully.org/
