Studies show that kids ages 8-18 are spending an average of 7.5 hours a day in front of some screen; with that, the crimes associated with these ever changing technologies and social media quickly follow and evolve- maybe faster then we can keep up with. Today, working with and keeping our youth safe means being constantly aware of what they're doing online and figuring out ways we can help them have a safe, productive experience with technology. Attendees will leave with a good understanding of current app and social media trends- how and why they're being used- along with hot topic issues such as sexting, cyberbullying, and solicitation through new mediums.
