Westside to host Social Media seminar for parents
Most parents know that their kids are on Facebook (because no kid can be without it these days) and possibly twitter, as well. But there are a host of other less well-known services and websites used by teens that are now under scrutiny. To keep families best informed of social media pitfalls and dangers, Westside Community Schools will host a free seminar Thursday August 24. The seminar, open to the public, will be hosted at Westside High School from 6:30pm-7:30pm.
School attorney, Karen Haase, will review the social media applications that they see students using in Nebraska currently and will explore the legal issues that arise connected with each of these platforms. Cyberbullying, digital citizenship will also be discussed.
