A Safety Program for Children
Children are given devices in school at the earliest ages. From Street-smart to Web-wise® is a safety program beginning at Kindergarten and matures with the learner throughout grade level promotions. Course modules, residing on the device, include:
- “Stranger-danger” – who and what in today’s world?
- Cyber security – starting with the basics such as what is a footprint; maturing to social media and safe app selection.
- Active Shooter – what to know and DO!
This important training will create awareness and educate through an interactive learning program, presented via a gender-equitable education platform to safeguard the child’s physical safety, and their privacy and personally identifiable information.
Madeline Parisi & Associates LLC, (MPA) a Women Business Entity and as Principal Investigator, has developed a team including Subject Matter Experts (SME) and Instructional Designers (ID), to combine our mutual and complementary experience in the areas of Education, Information Technology, Cyber Security, and Instructional Design, and custom designing an online interactive program designed for students at all levels K-12 – From Street-smart to Web-wise®. Through various media outlets, we are aware of the vulnerabilities that arise due to existing and emerging cyber threats. Scenario-based training is the methodology to be used to provide value and to capture the attention of this group.
In classroom environments and in child-serving organizations, young children have access to internet-enabled devices. Classroom devices may have restricted access, but what happens when the child has free access to an internet-enabled device? Training for safe use, if any, falls to the teacher/program leader. Facilitator’s guides as well as information sheets are provided to parents, group leaders, or teachers to assist in the learning process.
A pre-consultation discussion will help you identify how our professional development services supply you with the tools and techniques you need to meet your goals and objectives. See more information on in Services.
