According to the American Library in Paris website, more than 90% of U.S. teenagers ages 12-17 go online, and 73% of them have profiles on social networking sites; of children ages 5 and below who use the internet, 80% use it once a week. Along with Internet safety expert Samantha Wolfe, Dr. Milovidov will give a presentation on children's rights law and the numerous issues that children using social media and the Internet face - cyberbullying, cybergrooming, predators, sexting, etc. Dr. Milovidov will provide recommendations and resources for parents, educators and businesses to ensure a safer Internet use. The presentation will be followed by an informal Q&A and discussion.

I aim to help my students prepare for life beyond "the groves of academe" - especially how to ask the right questions to work out what is really going on out there. Along the way, they practice writing lucidly and succinctly. It is stimulating teaching such a lively crew. I hope they also find it fun being challenged to analyse the facts without prejudice and to think originally.
