Social Media Awareness - Institute for Prevention

Social Media Awareness, Internet Safety and Cyber Bullying
Presenter: Melissa Straub

In today’s technological age, school faculty faces a daunting task of teaching and mentoring children free of constant negative influence. Access to undesirable people and information is prevalent and extremely difficult to monitor. This is exacerbated by the fact that most kids are more proficient and comfortable with technology than adults. Consequently, staff need to educate themselves on the danger today’s children face from this constantly connected online world. During this presentation, faculty will learn of the following danger areas: Review of Kids Current Issues, Sites and Apps , Teens and Social Media/ Technology, Connectivity and Data Deletion, The New Definition of Bullying/Cyberbullying, Structure of Technology – What Makes It Dangerous, Cyber-Bullying-Online Aggression, and Psychological Fallout.
