Our youth (digital natives) have grown up in a cyber worldthat is seamlessly integrated with our daily lives.  Most parents and other adults (digital immigrants) are not completely familiar with all the various internet apps, tools and sites that allow people to connect in good and bad ways.  Many times children are more comfortable in that world than the adults who are supposed to look out for them.  While we teach our youth the etiquette of various social interactions: restaurant behavior, etc;many adults don’t understand enough to give them guidelines for the on-line world.  This is a program that will help.

This program is brought to you by: The City of AlbuquerqueCooperative Educational Services, Intel Security, Independent Insurance Agents of New Mexico, New Mexico Coalition of Educational Leaders, New Mexico School Boards Association andthe New Mexico Parent Teacher Association.

This program is produced by:  Christopher Productions, LLC in association with SafeTeen New Mexico.
