East Aurora Unit District 131 is offering "Internet Safety Workshops for Parents."

Parents who missed the Internet Safety Workshops offered in the fall can join presenter Diana Graber as she returns for an encore presentation of her virtual series "Raising Students in a Digital Environment." Registration is required for these Zoom workshops at www.d131.org.


Topics include: increased screen time, online learning challenges, maintaining safe and healthy online relationships, social media use, and how to help children manage their digital reputations and online privacy. All presentations will be conducted in English and Spanish.

For questions, contact Sam Loveland at (630) 299-7316 or sloveland@d131.org or Iliana Nunez at (630) 299-7207 or inunez@d131.org.

The programs will be offered from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesdays, starting on Jan. 19, with "Digital Parenting During COVID-19."

It will continue on Jan. 26 with "Digital Citizenship: The Safe and Responsible Use of Digital Tools," on Feb. 2 with "What is Media Literacy and Why Is it So Important?," and Feb. 9 on "Teaching Students to Use Tech Safely and Wisely."

Graber is a co-founder of CyberWise and founder of Cyber Civics. She is also the author of "Raising Humans in a Digital World: Helping Kids Build a Healthy Relationship with Technology."

An expert on digital literacy, Graber writes, presents, and is interviewed about technology's impact upon human behavior. Her no-nonsense approach comes from being an educator, media producer, academic, and most of all, a mom.

Graber developed (and still teaches) Cyber Civics, the popular middle school digital literacy program currently being taught in schools in 47 U.S. states and internationally.
