Student Presentation Topics
Students will learn the difference between being a passive bystander of cyber bullying versus an engaged up stander who takes action to stop cyber bullying. Students will also learn the difference between good-natured teasing and cyber bullying, how to show empathy to the victims and what to do if they are the victim.
This presentation is ideal for students in 3rd through 7th grade in either an assembly or classroom setting.
Protecting Your Digital Reputation
Students will learn how their digital footprint can qualify or disqualify their college and employment prospects. They will be encouraged to consider how a positive and authentic image of themselves online will shape their future. Students will also learn how to monitor and repair their current digital reputation.
This presentation is ideal for middle and high school students. High school format would be better served in a classroom or small assembly group with fewer than 100 students so effective interaction can take place.
