The Attorney General's Office supports parents and teachers in their efforts to teach kids how to use technology safely. Specifically, our Internet Safety Specialists provide age-appropriate presentations for students, as well as presentations for parents and educators in schools throughout Illinois. If you would like to request such a presentation at your school, please complete the Speaker Request Form and return it to our office.
The goals of our presentations are as follows:
- Students: Encourage empathy, support critical thinking and promote privacy and safe use of technology, sites, apps and video games as they relate to student use. Presentations are available for all grades K-12.
- Parents and Educators: Build a foundation of Internet safety knowledge, provide information on current Illinois youth trends and discuss intervention and prevention strategies as well as laws in regard to cyberbullying and sexting.
