Marshall Students Learn the Importance of Cyber Safety

Computer Innovation students in Mrs. O’Leary’s classes learned the importance of being safe and smart when using social media.  Students today have easy access to numerous social networking sites, but are they being cautious enough when doing so?  Officer Olin visited all of the Computer Innovation classes to help stress the importance of being safe, smart, responsible and cautious when using the internet, email, instant messaging and all other social media sources.  Hopefully from these discussions and videos, students will be more aware about being safe and cautious when using the computer and their phones!
