Topics covered will be:

    • Today’s current apps and programs
    • Cyber bullying
    • Sexting/Texting
    • Social Networking, positives and negatives
    • How to protect kids from becoming victims
    • How their families create “digital footprints”
    • Tips for parents to keep their families safe

Message from the Trainer

“My style is to not lecture but present the facts. Based on what I’ve seen firsthand as a police officer, during my undercover investigations as a child online, as a parent, as a resource for schools and as someone who works with college scholarship committees and employers on background checks, I have seen both the positive and negative results of being online and that is what I relay to the students. What they do online right now can have an impact on their future. “

-Scott Driscoll, Internet Safety Concepts
