About the Event
About the Presentation:
Social media and the internet are wonderful, powerful, and have completely transformed how we learn and communicate. However, our online activity also poses considerable risk. Because of a perfect match between the way these networks are engineered and our biology, it is massively addictive. Further, the internet is now the preferred way for predators to approach their victims. This presentation will explore how social media can grab our attention and keep it and increase awareness of online dangers. It will go on to offer suggestions for reducing the risks to our children and teens.
