The Respecting Yourself and Others Online workshop was created to provide tweens and young teens with strategies and knowledge that will help them respect themselves, respect others and respect the space when using social media.
Through a series of activities and presentations, participants will develop critical thinking skills and strategies, grounded in the best practices of digital citizenship and digital literacy, to minimize the risk of negative experiences and to maximize the positive opportunities of social media. The workshop also gives teens an opportunity to be leaders through peer-led activities.
The workshop is designed to be presented in a classroom, school, or community setting, as a stand-alone event or as a companion to The Parent Network: Social Media and Your Kids workshop for parents.
It comprises a slide show and a guide for adult and youth facilitators.
The Respecting Yourself and Others Online workshop was made possible by financial contributions from Bell.
