The World Wide Web has fundamentally changed the lives of children more than any innovation in history. The pervasiveness of portable internet enabled devices opens a world of opportunity to people and offers us great hope for communication, learning, and commerce. However, there are serious risks associated with the online world. Many parents and schools have unknowingly placed their children in harm’s way. This presentation is aimed at informing adults of the risks associated with children’s online activity.

A critical part of classroom management is the implementation of corrective consequences. For corrective consequences to reduce or eliminate purposeful or habitual misbehavior, they must be implemented consistently. When consequences are implemented only some of the time, the consequence, no matter how severe is not likely to change the behavior. In fact, it may even make things worse. This session will provide tips for implementing consequences.

Selection Process
Each presentation proposal will be reviewed and evaluated by the Oklahoma Summit planning committee to determine the selection. Proposals will be reviewed for:

  • Clarity of proposal

  • Adherence to proposal submission instructions
