Participants will explore their own settings on Facebook and Google, and identify relevant resources that teach about Internet safety and digital citizenship.

Prerequisites: Participants need to have basic computer and Internet skills.

 
Session length 3 hours 
Format Workshops: Training events at a physical location, of short duration (2 – 6 hours) but may be part of a series.
