Welcome to the virtual world, where everything we post, tweet, snap, follow and comment on can (and will be) scrutinized within minutes and for years to come. Now, more than ever, it's time for teens, parents, and educators to get smart about technology and social media.
Founded by Amie Konwinski, mother of five daughters, U.S. Navy veteran, and computer engineer, Smart Girl Society works to protect students, parents and educators on all things digital. We want to encourage meaningful conversations about digital media trends by promoting taking action towards safety and privacy online. Do we work with boys? Absolutely.
We envision a society where:
- Teens are empowered to be safe, authentic, and private on social media.
- Parents are intentionally engaged with their children and the devices and apps given to them.
- Educators are more equipped to manage iGen students in a constantly changing digital environment.
We aim to reduce digital-based anxiety, prevent peer and predator exploitation, and ensure our communities remain safe. Through our 100 schools campaign, we are setting out to impact 48,000 students, parents, and educators in the greater Omaha area.
