Cyber Savvy: Promoting Students' Safe and Civil Internet PracticeBy Nancy Willard
Cyber bullying has become common enough that state after state across the country is passing laws against it. This course will empower educators (including classroom teachers, technology leaders, librarians, health teachers, and school resource officers) to help their students become cyber savvy instead of cyber victims. Educators will develop multiple skills to prevent and mediate bullying behavior as well as skills to teach potentially vulnerable youth — influenced by their maturity levels, developing sense of identity, and sexual curiosity — to focus their cyber energies on positive norms and practices. Educators will also scrutinize their own behavior online in order to be in legal compliance and to model appropriate behavior for their students.
Cyberbullying: Addressing Digital Aggression, Exploitation, and AbuseBy Nancy Willard
In more and more states, the law prohibits digital aggression, abuse, and exploitation. Educators have a responsibility to uphold those laws; they also have a responsibility to protect the students in their care. This course prepares educators (including principals, counselors, school resource officers, and technology experts) to promote students' safe and responsible use of digital technologies, refuting a few myths along the way. Presenter Nancy Willard and her guest experts outline a comprehensive approach — multidisciplinary and research-based — to teaching students strategies that help them avoid risky behavior and empower them to make the most of the vigorous digital environments where they live out important aspects of their 21st century lives.
