Social Media Speaker Visits District 145

Students, staff and parents learn about social media smarts. (Includes presentation slide links!)

November 29, 2012

On Tuesday, November 27th, Karen Haase spoke to the district’s students in grades 5-12, staff and parents on social media, cyberbullying and general Internet safety.  Karen is a great speaker, being a former college professor of public speaking, and has a great approach to social media.  She knows how to engage, while keeping the topic relevant, and can make an impact on her audience.

The student sessions were well received by our student body.  Several parents commented at the parent session that their students had already come home and discussed what they heard that day.

The parent presentation, entitled "Cyberparenting" helped provide simple tips to parents that will help them keep their students safe in the online world.  Particular topics included: discussing social media, sexting and cyberbullying with your students; getting involved in you child's online life; how to place limits on electronic communications and how to recognize cyberbullying.

Karen has been generous enough to share the slides from her presentations.  Links to the slides are below:
