Social Media Smarts (1 quarter)
Instructor: Kate Wolfe
UC a-g credit: No
It’s hard to be a gatekeeper in a world with no fences. Parents have little control over the flow of information to their kids, who see too much, too soon. We no longer hear conversations or see what our kids create and share with others. Since we cannot cover their eyes, or shadow them everywhere they go, we need to teach them how to behave responsibly in the digital world. This is an eight week course in social media smarts designed for middle school students.
