Be Internet Awesome Workshop

Raising children in the age of smartphones and social media brings new challenges and concerns for all families. The Sandburg PTA is excited to host a Be Internet Awesome Workshop which promotes safer and more responsible use of online technology among children and families.

Tip of the Month:  Don’t “friend” or chat to strangers online. Your child should be able to tell you three things about the person they are interacting with online (e.g. he has an older brother at York, he lives on Geneva Avenue, and he has a dog named Buddy).

To access our presentation including links to the materials, tools and resources, please go to the Be Internet Awesome Workshop on our PTA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES PAGE
