Social Media for Kids - Local Program Makes Big News

Check out this great program, the brainchild of local hero Garnett Alcindor, who's also a driving force behind the Franklin Avenue Merchants, Collective Concept PR, and the Franklin Avenue Kids Day:

News 12 Brooklyn was on the scene in the 6th grade classroom at Dr. Rose B. English School/PS 327 to get a sneak peek at Social Media For Kids® in action. In light of recent incidents in which Brooklyn youth engaged in arguments over social networking sites - later escalating to violent interactions and murder – News 12was amazed to see how well the curriculum incorporated tactics that prevent cyberbullying, while teaching the kids social media and multi-media literacy. News 12 captured Social Media For Kids’® lesson on cyberbullying, in which the class made videos to spread the word about how we can work together to prevent violence over the Internet.

Social Media For Kids® educates children about the dangers of the Internet and teaches them to promote themselves online in a positive light. They also offer Adult Workshops that teach parents how to use social media outlets and how to monitor their children’s online activities. Staying informed, alert, and serving as a positive online role model can help ensure that our children avoid online dangers.
