This month our program was in the Herald Journal in Logan following a training at Nibley Elementary. The students were a great audience, and showed interest and respect as we talked about what they can do to stay away from the dangers they face on the Internet.
Our goal is to empower students to make positive choices while they are on the Internet and while using technology to socialize with their friends. We want students to understand that they have control over everything they do on the Internet. They choose what websites they visit, who they talk to and add to their friends list, and what information they share with other people. They are also the one’s creating the environment they are socializing in online.
This is why it’s important that parents and guardians are involved to help guide the students to make positive choices. This includes monitoring what websites they are visiting, who they’re talking to online, what information they are sharing, and creating a positive environment for themselves and all of their friends.
