It's all too easy for kids to get drawn into trouble online, often with serious long-term consequences. Get informed with up-to-the-minute examples of the dangers young users may encounter and measures adults can take to promote safe habits in our ever-changing, technology-driven society. Katie Greer is a pioneer in children's cyber-safety and national expert on the digital world as experienced by today's youth. She previously served as the Director of Internet Safety at the Massachusetts Attorney General's Office, and now speaks in schools nationally. She has been featured on CNN and in TIME, USA Today and Vanity Fair. This talk is part of the 2014 ParentMap Lecture Series.
