Get Connected: Keeping Up With Our Kids Online
On Tuesday February 3rd, Marvin Ridge Middle School invited all parents and students to attend an informational session on Digital Citizenship titled “Get Connected: Keeping Up With Our Kids Online.” Parents and students met from 6:00 - 7:30 and learned about digital citizenship issues including one’s digital tattoo and how the media impacts students’ self image.
Casey Zvanut, Marvin Ridge’s Instructional Technology Facilitator, shared a presentation and other materials that focused on how we as a community can protect our children when they are online. She was assisted by her colleague from Cuthbertson Middle and High, Jan Anderson. Marvin Ridge’s School Resource Officer, Deputy McCann, also shared insights into the legal ramifications of cyberbullying and sexting.
