Students use digital tools (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.) as vehicles for social interface and communication.  Too often, technology is misused and abused.  Parents need to understand what children should know to use these tools appropriately.  This workshop is a way to prepare technology users to apply proper etiquette on social media and how to protect their reputations.  Modeling Good Digital Citizenship is a workshop that will guide parents/guardians in how to communicate expectations with their children, the responsibilities of using social media, and consequences if misused.
