PreTeen and Teen Netiquette Workshop
Is technology creating impolite teens?
Social media platforms are great places to communicate and learn. However, there is a lack of etiquette on social media because etiquette rules haven't been laid out for users. If you do not use technology responsibly, it can negatively affect your reputation and your relationships, both personally and professionally. Teens need to keep in mind that colleges and employers are seeking people with not just good technical and academic skills, but also with social graces, self- awareness, and a positive presence on the internet.
In this workshop your teen will learn how to be more aware and digitally responsible on the internet in order to ensure that their image is well-reflected.
