Students are engaging in risky behavior online. Will you know when they need help?
We can help your district establish Cyber Safety policies and procedures, then teach them to educators, parents and students.
Is policing the online behavior of your students becoming a full time job?
Many administrators are dealing with constant problems stemming from students being online, issues like sexting, cyber bullying, hate speech, inappropriate use of technology and a school culture lacking empathy. There is enormous pressure to “fix” the problems right away and enormous consequences if you don’t.
It’s tempting to put out the fires, one by one. But perhaps it’s time to take a high-level approach instead.
Do you have Cyber Safety policies and procedures? If so, do they make sense? Are they updated? Do they mitigate your risk? If not, what’s holding you back from developing them?
We can help you develop policies and procedures based in best practices. We train staff, parents and students on cyber safety and digital citizenship.
School districts, parents and communities need work together for the cyber safety of students. The foundation of this work starts with Intentional Screens, a simple and effective way to keep kids safe online.
It is inevitable that students will either find inappropriate content online… or it will find them. What they do when that happens depends on the training and education they’ve had.
