Social Media Internet Safety Parent Presentation December 3rd

Social Media is a reality for our children and technology is a strong learning tool that we must embrace for today's learner....but how do we keep our children safe as they navigate the internet and become responsible digital citizens? 

On Thursday, December 3rd, 2015, Social Media expert, Paul Davis will be presenting a session on Internet safety and how to stay safe when using social media to our students in Grades 4-8.  Through such education we hope to prevent cyber-bullying and help our children stay safe as they navigate the cyber world of the Internet. 


Parents and guardians need to be aware of how their children are using this technology. We need to be educated on how to keep our children safe on social media as well. At 7:00 p.m. that evening, Paul Davis will come back to give a parenting presentation for all parents and guardians with children of all ages on this important topic.   


As seen on CTV News, Global TV and Breakfast TV, Paul's expertise on this subject has been sought out by many schools and parenting groups.  He has also been a TED talk speaker.
