Did you miss the Digital Native or Digital Naïve presentation or want to view it again?

September 19, 2022

Last Wednesday, our Upper Elementary and Middle School Parent Education focused on digital citizenship. Springmont hosted Ben Halpert, founder of Savvy Cyber Kids, an organization dedicated to helping parents and teachers educate children about cyber safety, cyber ethics, and other aspects of their daily tech lives.
Many UE and Middle School parents joined in person while their children enjoyed a bonus social time and pizza with their friends.  Several parents tuned in from home to the live stream as well. Mr. Halpert spent the day with our students, sharing critical and valuable information on various aspects of online behavior, ranging from media time balance to privacy and security issues.

Library Media Specialist Leslie Wachter will continue these discussions in small groups throughout the year utilizing Savvy Cyber Kids and Common Sense Media education resources. Mr. Halpert emphasized that there is no magic age to begin these discussions, and the earlier - the better. Savvy Cyber Kids website even has plenty of resources for preschool-age children!
