Internet Safety Presentation

As access to the internet (and other technology) increases for our children, so do our concerns about their online safety.  Our students at All Saints Catholic Academy are very tech savvy.  The adults in their lives – the staff and administration of All Saints, and especially parents and guardians– need to be aware of the dangers that our children face every day in their online lives; and be informed about strategies that will help us in teaching and parenting in this hyper digital age.

School Home Parent Partnership (SHPP) is sponsoring an Internet Safety Presentation that will take place at ASCA on Wednesday, November 29 at 6:30 pm.   I truly hope that you will plan on attending; and please feel free to bring a friend or a neighbor who might also benefit from the information that will be shared.  To our parents of younger children – even though your child may not have a smart phone yetthey will have one some day in the future.  You will absolutely benefit from hearing this presentation, as well. 

Topics of discussion include:

  • Social Media – what it is, what advantages and positives it provides, and the pitfalls of it.
  • Online Gaming – what are the dangers and suggestions to implement in the home to increase safety.
  • Cyber Bullying – being a bystander as well as an upstander, with examples of how they can identify a situation and support a victim of online bullying.
  • Online Predators – how predators connect with teens online.
  • Over Exposure – the permanency of online posts, the implications of inappropriate posts, and creating a positive digital footprint.
  • Sexting – what it is, consequences of it, possible solutions for groups of students to prevent the actions before they receive the text
  • Proper actions to take when students encounter problems online.
  • Montoring Options for Devices
  • Creating an escape or exit plan between parent and student – helping students making safe decisions vs. a decision to stay out of trouble with parents.

By increasing our awareness and comfort on these issues, parents will be more involved in their child’s online life, thus increasing the communication on these topics and their safety. If you would like to see more information about the presentation, please click here.
