If They Use It, We Covered It
The average age at which children are beginning to interact with phones, social media apps, gaming consoles, and computers is decreasing at a rapid rate. The internet is not always a safe environment for young people to operate with no restrictions or protections. Online predators, explicit and vulgar content, and hackers are all looking to take advantage of victims who unknowingly are at risk. There are many common practices that can easily be set in place by parents with the right set of tools. We have created a toolkit and we want to share it with you. Parent’s have taken on a new role of digital parenting that requires an additional set of precautions. Without any form of information or familiarity with a child’s technology usage, a parent may be putting their child at risk.
The goal of this course is not “completion”. The goal is to equip parents with a toolkit for their child’s digital security. We have provided a way to learn exactly what you need to know, without any “fluff” content. The course will teach you about platforms that are being used by the majority of today’s youth and exactly how to work with them. Each topic(ex. Instagram) can be covered in 20 minutes or less. The lessons you complete are at your discretion.
In short, no: Our course covers as many different popular types of technologies and apps as we could find. However, each app and device are covered in their own unique chapters. We have created a course where your time and energy are completely customizable based on your child’s devices and age. For example: if you are primarily concerned about Snapchat and Instagram, you can skip directly to these two lessons. If you ever need the other content, it will be waiting for you when you decide to utilize it.
