A free workshop open to the public entitled Internet Safety, Protecting Your Children from Online Crime will take place Wednesday, September 26, 2012, from 6–8 p.m. The meeting will be held at Weddle Elemenary School, 1825 Alder Drive NE, Keizer.
About the workshop
Social networking sites, such as Facebook, are popular Internet destinations for millions of children and teens nationwide.
Unfortunately, these same sites are also popular with sexual predators, cyber bullies and con artists. When unsuspecting students post personal information online or communicate via cell phone or online chat, they become easy targets for predators—who can use this information to identify, locate, contact and harrass them.
Attend this informative workshop and learn what you can do to help prevent child abuse and keep children and teens safe online. This presentation contains explicit material and is not appropriate for children to attend.
- Internet predators—How they prey on children & the tactics they use.
- Cyberbullying—what it is and how to address it.
- Social Networking Sites—MySpace, Facebook, etc.
- Email and Instant Messaging.
- Cellular Phones and Gaming Devices.
- Identity theft—the risks and how to prevent it.
