In the fall of 2012, a survey was given to all 6-8th graders at St. Mary Magdalene School as a part of our annual Internet Awareness Week. Used as a kickoff for yearlong education and lessons in the responsible use of technology, this survey was intended to help students think more deeply about their experiences online, specifically regarding the topic of cyberbullying. The results of the survey opened many eyes to the experiences of so many of our middle schoolers. In overwhelming numbers they shared how difficult their lives with technology are for them, and how they need help navigating the stressful, and often hurtful situations that they see often.
Check out our online presentation with survey results here (http://bit.ly/StIsidore).
After analyzing the survey data, a small task force of interested middle schoolers and StMM staff was formed. The goal was to create a program that could help students, parents, and staff work together proactively with the goal of educating each other on the realities of our Internet-based interactions, so that teachers and parents understand and know how to work together with their children. Most programs look to resolve issues after a problem occurs, and this is important. However, it is just as important, if not more important, to try to prevent the issue in the first place, to give students and families tools they can use. After a few meetings, the St. Isidore Project was born.
Families who are interested in making the topic of Internet Safety a priority in their homes can take this pledge, which means we will all work together to teach our children responsible use of technology, and how to handle situations that make make it difficult to work online. Participation is never mandatory, but a strong sense of community involvement will help our students understand the importance of good digital citizenship.
