Special Interest: Safe Apps and Websites
From the moment children and youth wake up, till when they go to bed there are things beeping, buzzing and tweeting at them trying to get them online. A MediaSmarts national survey found that 99% of students have access to internet outside of school, 54% of teens use their cell phones daily and 39% sleep with their cell phones. The majority of young people are using this technology unsupervised. What apps and websites are they visiting? Are they safe? Let’s Plan to Protect®!
This training is designed for parents and caregivers to help provide you with practical tips for keeping children and youth safe online. We will address potential risks associated with online activities and which apps or websites may be more dangerous. Victoria Bissell, the Director of Training at Plan to Protect® and a Teacher/Educator, will provide you with practical tips for protecting children online and teaching them to be safe. She’ll answer your questions and help you take a more proactive and involved role in your children’s online behavior. Let’s raise the bar on protection!
