Digital Positivity - Keeping Kids Safe Online
Original Program Date: May 5, 2020
Amidst the many challenges COVID-19 has presented, it has also threatened the digital positivity and safety that we strive to create for our children. With young people increasingly living their lives online (taking classes, connecting with the world, etc.), the result, we fear, may be online hate. Hear ReThink Founder and CEO Trisha Prabhu discuss cyberbullying, and empowering young people to be the best they can online. This program includes a discussion of cyberbullying – what it is (in its many forms), who it most impacts, and why science says it happens, as well as a comprehensive introduction to the ReThink tool, an app that encourages tweens and teens to make positive decisions online. Parents/educators will learn the most recent, important facts about cyberbullying, as well as gain exposure to an up-and-coming tool to address it.
