ICANHELP provides valuable and relevant information for students, parents, and educators regarding social media.

How to Build Trust and Safety on School Campus
Monday, May 2, 7:30 p.m. (ET)
For years, schools have pushed back against social media and digital technology in the hands of students on campus. But the world has shifted and digital devices and platforms are an integral part of how students communicate, connect, and collaborate. Students also face tough digital situations like harmful TikTok Challenges, school shooting threats, and fake pages where students can act out anonymously online. Students need to feel supported when it comes to reporting social media and digital technology incidents. This workshop will teach administrators how to respond to and investigate incidents of cyberbullying, harassment, slander, and more so they can support their students with empathy and transparency to build trust.
How to Help Students Win the Digital World
Monday, May 16, 7:30 p.m. (ET)
Students of today are dealing with a very different world from students of 5, 10, and 20 years ago. The pressure to put their best foot forward at school AND on social media is a heavy responsibility. Staying competitive and visible today is about more than performing well in class or in extracurriculars—digital literacy and brand management are now crucial skills for students. Learn how to educate and empower your students to embrace social media and become digital role models without it messing with their mental health, affecting their studies, or damaging your school’s brand.
