DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP & SOCIAL MEDIA
with Denise DeRosa
With flying fingers propelled with emotion, need-to-stay current, or fear of rejection, we often hit send before processing ramifications. Help your kids get back in control and make the most of social media and technology, rather than allowing addictive apps, predators, bullies, and corporate profit to overtake their lives. COS presenters are high-energy, fountains of information and captivating communicators. We share real-life stories, so no one thinks, “It won’t happen to me.” We combat technology risks by addressing the physical, social, and emotional consequences of social media. Help your children build extraordinary reputations and respectable digital dossiers. We address cyber-civility, the concept of a “digital dossier,” sexting, hate speech, anonymity, and more.
Ms. DeRosa has a Master’s Degree in Communication, Culture and Technology from Georgetown University and 15 plus years of media experience at AOL, VH1 and Comedy Central. Her understanding of the cultural and societal impacts of communication technologies along with her experience as a mom inspired the development of her first workshop on parenting in the digital age. Denise founded Cyber Sensible in 2015 to provide online safety and digital citizenship advice to organizations, families, parents, youth and schools. She believes in the importance of digital literacy education for all. She is dedicated to empowering her clients with the tools needed to embrace digital technologies in meaningful, creative, and positive ways.
