#iSMART educates youth about the dangers, risks, and threats the Internet and social media pose for them today and in the future.
#iSMART is unique in that it is an interactive presentation, designed for kids to be an active participant in the learning process. A prosecutor and law enforcement officer use visual storyboards depicting several scenarios, including cyberbullying, sexting, sextortion, online strangers and stalkers, and gang activity online. Throughout the scenarios, facilitators ask thought provoking questions to get students thinking and talking about what they post, how quickly pictures or texts spread, how easily stalkers or predators can find them, and the short and long term consequences. Potential civil and criminal legal consequences are also discussed.
#iSMART is geared toward middle and high school students. There is also a parent component to educate and provide parents with tools and resources to help them protect their children.
