Please join us for OTAN's next Tech Talk on Friday, February 14 from 1:00pm to 2:00pm PST. This month's Tech Talk is on Internet Safety for Students and Teachers by Susan Gaer, OTAN Subject Matter Expert.

Ever wonder how you can keep yourself and your learners safe when online - is that even possible? It is possible and you can use mobile devices, apps, and online tools effectively and safely. During this Tech Talk, the presenter will explain what a web presence is, show how to design and maintain a presence online that suits the individual personally and professionally, explain detection techniques to avoid scams such as pharming, phishing, and smashing, have participants become more aware of phone settings to increase mobile safety, and show how to use the Internet safely.
