The Impact of Technology on our Families


Do you know all the latest social media sites your children are exposed to? 


Do you know the laws associated with misuse of technology and social media?


Could you or your child be a victim of inappropriate use of social media and texting?


What information does Facebook, Tumblr, Pintrest, Google, collect about your children and
with whom do they share this information?


What steps need to taken to reclaim your child's reputation and steps to make sure your child is
protected in the first place.  


Empower U and Cincinnati Bell partner to bring this presentation to people who wish to be informed on this most vital subject. This class will give you facts and anecdotes focused on three common technology issues confronting young people:
sexting, online privacy and cyber bullying.


Mr. Smith will teach why we need to be careful about what we share on social media, that nothing is every truly deleted and content is not always guaranteed to be private and can be shared without our knowledge.  He will discuss how college admission offices look a social media when deciding whether or not to admit students.


He will educate parents and their children about the latest social media sites that are popular, digital literacy, using technology responsibly , laws associated with misuse of techonolgy and more. We encourage grade and middle school parents and their children to attend this class.
