This session covers how to keep teachers and learners safe when using devices on the Internet. It is possible to use mobile devices, apps, and online tools effectively and safely - we just need to know how.

Topics will include but are not limited to:

  • the definition of an online or web presence include personal and professional presence, 
  • how to design and maintain a presence online,
  • detect and avoid scams such as pharming, phishing and smishing and smashing
  • become more aware of device settings to increase mobile safety,
  • show how to use the Internet safely, and
  • more topics as time allows and as questions are answered.

As a workshop, this session will include guided practice on the topics above and participants will be encouraged to have their fully-charged mobile device/s in order to follow along as different operating systems will be covered.

As a presentation, following along on personal devices will be optional but also encouraged.
