Parent Workshop: Internet Safety with the Illinois Office of the Attorney General

January 8, 2015

Reminder: Parent Presentation with the Illinois Office of the Attorney General - January 14th from 11:00-12:00 pm

Lincoln Magnet School is partnering with the Illinois Office of the Attorney General to offer presentations on internet safety for our students and parents. Christine Feller, an Internet Specialist within the High Tech Crime Bureau, presented to our 6th, 7th and 8th grade students last week.

This interactive workshop encouraged youth to think about the technology applications they use, as well as the content and audience of their online posts. Students discussed the short and long term consequences of social media use both positive or negative. Trending technology was also covered, as well as a teen’s responsibilities online. Specific topics that were woven within the workshop include: self-representation, digital citizenship, sexting, online enticement, cyberbullying and piracy.

A parent presentation will also be provided on January 14th from 11:00-12:00 pm, covering topics such as monitoring internet usage, setting limits, and maintaining healthy boundaries.

Please join us for this informative workshop and help keep our children digitally safe.

Please RSVP by January 11th if you plan to attend. 525-3236
