We often hear stories in the news about misuse of technology by children, such as sending inappropriate photos to friends or making threats to one another. Although schools are working diligently to teach students about digital citizenship there is still a disconnect between what is happening in schools and outside in the community. There is a need to educate parents about how students are using technology and help them have conversations with their children about how to use technology safely.
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg School district's Instructional Technology Department often gets the opportunity to speak with families at school events such as PTA meetings and curriculum nights. Internet Safety and Digital Citizenship are often sessions of interest for parents. This project aims to fill the needs of these parents and be mutually beneficial for families and our schools.
