Navigating the Digital World, Internet and Social Media Safety for Adults
This internet safety training will be presented by Devin Payne and Jamie Fromberger with Street Hope Tennessee. This program was created specifically for adults only – parents, teachers, pastors, or anyone that works with children and youth. Adults will learn how to monitor their teens’ electronic devices, apps and games to watch out for, “teen online lingo” and common online risky behaviors teens participate in. Participants will also discuss general internet safety guidelines, how to identify signs of online exploitation (i.e. understanding grooming, and who predators and victims are), and gain understanding of the forms of online exploitation (sextortion, trafficking, extortion, radicalization, etc.).
