Upcoming Events

March 24, 2019: Cyber Sensible: Smart Use of Smart Technology for Teens

The Cyber Sensible Speaker Series  is for youth AND parents in the church and  community. It will cover common teen missteps (oversharing, connecting with strangers, constant comparisons to others, device overuse and sexting) and solutions to avoid or correct online mistakes.

Getting online gives you access to the whole world right at your fingertips. This is really exciting, but can also be dangerous. Before you enter cyberspace, it is a good idea to learn the fundamentals for the responsible use of technology; for fun, entertainment, education, interaction, and connection. We will discuss what Digital Wellness means; how to employ the safety and privacy settings available; how to develop a positive online reputation, managing screen time and notifications, maintaining a healthy tech diet; avoiding online dangers; tech etiquette; and ways to capitalize on the opportunities tech provides. The goal is to empower you to protect yourself online so you can fully benefit from a globally connected community.
