Why is this course important?

The internet offers many benefits for our students and allows students to extend their learning well past what was possible when many of us were in school. It also contains many dangers and we want to help you understand what options are available to you and what steps you can take to protect your child.

Did you know, according to Common Sense Media:

  • Children ages 8 and under spent an average of 1:55 a day with screen media (TV, video games, computer, mobile devices).
  • Tweens use about 6 hours.
  • More than 1/2 of teens spend at least 3 hours per day socializing online

The prefrontal cortex, or executive brain, isn’t fully developed until age 25, which sometimes increases risk-taking, poor decision-making, and absolute thinking. Therefore, students need help learning how to stay safe and protect their reputation online. We’re here to help, too!
