What session are you presenting at Fall CUE this year?

Creating Cybercitizens vs. Cyberbullies

What inspired you to put this session together?

I’m on a mission to change the trajectory of cyberbullying statistics. Please join in the movement. #SafeinCyberspace

Why should someone attend?

Come get certified to as a Super Cybercitizen! This workshop is appropriate for elementary and middle school teachers motivated to promote digital citizenship in their classrooms and at their schools. We will explore the statistics together and devise ways to combat against cyberthreats and cyberbullies through print and online resources, lesson plans, and parent involvement. We’ll have some fun through role playing too. Together we can make a difference to end the negative effects of cyberbullying.

What’s your CUE Story?

This is my third CUE, and I’m thrilled to be an attendee and presenter. I recently wrote a STEM book for children, Max and The Mouse Safe in Cyberspace to promote digital citizenship, and I was a featured author and presenter at the Spring CUE and STEMCon 2018.
