This podcast includes participant responses during several phases of an all-day workshop I shared today with educators working for “Operation Aware” in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Our topics included Internet safety, cyberbullying prevention, and safe digital social networking. The first question teachers responded to (in groups) was: What are the top behaviors that put students at risk or in danger online? The second question teachers responded to was: What messages about social networking do all our parents and administrators need to understand? I included some additional personal reflections and summative ideas about the workshop experience and the themes we discussed at the end of the podcast as well.
