Do you wonder about the risks and benefits of your son using Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube, Tumblr and other social media networks?     Chris Vollum pic

Chris Vollum, a leading expert in social media use, will present “Social Media Fitness: Helping Students and Parents Understand the Specific Benefits and Their Personal Risks of Using Facebook and Other Social Networks” on Wednesday, Nov. 12 at 7:30 p.m. in Weston Hall. Learn how to help your son maximize the safe use of social networking and more.

Vollum believes strongly that unlocking an individual’s potential through a positive, hands-on experience consistently trumps fear-based teaching models. Through a series of activities, participants develop practical skills to minimize the risk of bullying, cyber-bullying and loss of reputation. They also identify opportunities and platforms with which to build their reputations.

Vollum is a recognized expert on Facebook and Twitter and has presented this important material to more than 300,000 students at 22 school boards throughout Ontario and the United States. Please visit this link for more information on Vollum and his work.
