Workshop Description: WWW means worldwide web and in this around the clock, global society in which we live, safeguarding ourselves and others while online, is an exercise in eternal vigilance. Cyber-stalking and cyber-bullying are very real. Personal reputation damage and privacy issues are also of great concern.
In this hands-on workshop, learn how to take extra care to protect your information and identity from those with less than noble intention. Helpful websites and tools will be introduced, along with candid discussion among participants. Refreshers and updates from the previous two workshops, 'Digital Ethics & Internet Safety for Parents and Caregivers' and 'Digital Ethics & Reputation Damage in a Social Media Culture' will also be touched upon.
Please bring your cellphone to the workshop.
