The DigitalSmarts program is a series of eight hour-long workshops designed to teach important everyday digital skills. The workshops include hands-on activities and videos and cover topics such as:
- protecting privacy and security
- online job searching
- shopping and banking online
- using social media
- searching the internet effectively
- managing screen time for kids
The Facilitator’s Guide includes background information, advice on preparing and presenting, a supporting script, FAQs and handouts for participants.
The purpose of The Parent Network workshop is to help parents better understand how their kids are using social networking and to provide them with tips and tools they can use to help them minimize negative experiences and maximize the positive opportunities that social media has to offer. Post-workshop activities provided in the workshop guide give parents a chance to reflect and build on what they’ve learned in the presentation.
The workshop is designed to be presented in either a school or community setting, as a stand-alone event or as a companion to the Respecting Yourself and Others Online workshop for teens.
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.
