Event Navigation

TAW, MIRL, JFF, MOS. These are not military acronyms, but common “shorts” for text messaging. The object of this workshop is to provide an increased awareness about the misuse of smart phones and other mobile devices. Sexting and cyber-bullying instances are gathering more and more attention due to the negative consequences that might impact both the sender and the receiver of the message. Learn techniques of how to help decrease and prevent sexting and cyber-bullying and what to do when you are made aware of it happening.
