Tecumseh Public Schools learners, parents and community members are invited to attend a free Cyber Safety Seminar at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 7 in the Tecumseh High School Media Center.
The presentation is aimed towards parents of learners in grades 7 – 12 and will provide practical tips and tools for interacting safely online. Topics to be covered include:
· how to access the Michigan Sex Offender Registry
· understanding the impact of digital footprints
· the risks of sharing photos with embedded location information
· privacy risks associated with app usage
· the dangers and potential legal consequences of sexting
· identifying and reporting cyberbullying
“It’s so important to talk to children, teens and young adults about how to be safe online,” said Dr. Kelly Coffin, superintendent. “We want to provide resources to help our community navigate parenting in the digital age, and help them identify inappropriate online behavior including cyberbullying, sexting and over-sharing personal information.”
Parents are encouraged to drop in for the presentation during Parent-Teacher Conferences.
