As you know better than most, students are using the immense power of the Internet and mobile technologies to explore, connect, create, and learn in ways never before imagined—both in and out of the classroom especially in this changed remote learning world post the current pandemic. But issues that emerge with this 24/7 “connected culture” – from cyberbullying to privacy concerns to uncertainty about which information to trust online – are surfacing both in schools and at home. As a result, digital literacy and citizenship skills have become essential for students in the 21st century. That’s why we are committed to creating a positive impact on our local communities around the globe. As part of my profession I am encouraged to give back to my community through volunteering my time, expertise, and professional knowledge. I would like to do an informative session on Online Safety and Digital Privacy Awareness to the students.                                                                                                                                                             – Sangam
