In February 2007, a student and parent-focused workshop titled “Facebook 101” was introduced at the Halton District School Board’s inaugural Parent Involvement evening.
As students shift away from Facebook, however, our newest presentation, the “Social Media Fluency” school presentation supports students’ natural technology skills by illustrating, in detail and through clear examples, benefits and risks associated with six additional sites prominent in their lives; Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, Tumblr & ASK.FM.
Emphasized throughout the presentation is the fact that we ALL will be Googled at some point in our life, generally around career, education or sports opportunities. Described as “peace-of-mind” learning, the presentation emphasizes core values on cultivating a mindset of respectful digital citizenship, building and maintaining a compelling online reputation across various online profiles, and developing critical thinking and questions relevant to risk and online privacy breaches.
As of June 2013, the workshop has been delivered to more than 260,000 students throughout 22 Ontario School Boards and independent schools.
