Event Details

The Digital Hallway - Presenter: Sean Smith (@ThatSocialMediaGuy)

To educate Tweens, Teens, Teachers, Administrators and Parents on positive and effective use of Social Media, Apps and Digital Technologies, for the future benefits of our youth.

Social Media Education for tweens, teens, teachers and parents.

We gave them the tools and the platforms. Isn't it time we taught them how to use them the right way?


Tickets are FREE, but you must sign up as space is limited. This event is organized by CSS PAC, supported by CSS PAC & DPAC

 
MORE INFO: About the Presentation...

Social Media is the fastest growing communications tool in human history. It has connected the world in a way that no other form of communication ever has……and we have only tapped the surface of its potential.

Yet with all of this opportunity and conversation, we still do not teach our youth about it. For the most part, we accept the fact that the current (and future) generations, the “Digital Natives”, will simply know how it works as soon as they pick it up for the first time. To a point, this is true. The curious mind of a child will explore who something works to see what it is capable of doing, finding the things that capture their minds and imaginations and running with it until something new gains their attention.

This approach, however, is fraught with danger. From online bullying to dealing with online predators to sexting and porn, our youth are exposed to a myriad of things that we try desperately to help them avoid in the offline world. At the same time, we are missing the opportunity to show them the vast possibilities available to them, from building a positive Digital Footprint before entering the workforce, to building on an entrepreneurial dream from keyboard of a laptop.

The time has come for Social Media and the digital space to become part of the education of our youth, both in the home and in the schools….and the only way we do this is to enter their space and learn with them……enter The Digital Hallway.

Organizer

Cowichan Secondary PAC

Cowichan Secondary School PAC (Parent Advisory Committee) ...Primarily we are here to help distribute (not raise) funds allotted to the school, and help facilitate and enhance student opportunities, student-parent education, school needs and activities, in a fair & democratic but simple way. 

This is a group to help us know what the heck is going on at school....because our kids no longer tell us! :) which means...we share pictures, events, news, ideas and school docs, ask stuff, share fundraising efforts for groups/teams within the school community, support where we can, etc...

We share news from the CSS counselors: Lots of Career and planning Info, scholarship and bursary stuff, exchanges, volunteer ops, jobs, etc...

Please share anyone you think at CSS (both Campus'), students, teachers, and that could benefit from this info - Students, Parents, Teachers, whomever...all are Welcome!
