WHAT IS SMARTER INTERNET USE'S MISSION?
Smarter Internet Use: Empowering Digital Citizenship for a Safer Tomorrow
The internet has evolved at lightning speed over the past two and a half decades, and with that evolution comes new challenges. Today, many individuals find themselves grappling with conflicts and consequences arising from their online habits, simply because they were never taught how to navigate this digital landscape. But fear not, for Smarter Internet Use™ is here to transform the way we interact with the online world.
Founded by an Arizona internet and business law attorney who has witnessed firsthand the personal and financial disasters caused by careless internet behavior, Smarter Internet Use™ is on a mission to fill a crucial educational void. We have spent years championing online speech initiatives, but we've also seen the real-life impact of avoidable mistakes made by countless individuals.
In the past, obtaining personalized advice from an attorney could cost hundreds of dollars per hour, and even then, you might not gain the valuable "insider's perspective" we offer. Failing to educate yourself, however, can lead to far costlier consequences, both financially and emotionally, down the road.
Our Vision: Nurturing Digital Citizenship with Affordable and Impactful Online Workshops
Imagine a world where legal fees, frustration, and heartache caused by online mishaps are minimized. At Smarter Internet Use™ , we are committed to making this vision a reality. Our in-person and online workshops provide invaluable insights, guidance, and practical knowledge, all at a fraction of the cost you might spend elsewhere.
The Consequences: Real-Life Stories that Drive Our Mission
The need for digital citizenship education becomes all too clear when we consider real-life scenarios like:
- An individual faced over $60,000 in legal fees to defend against defamation from an online review forum.
- Talented students losing scholarship opportunities due to questionable or offensive content posted online.
- Tragic accidents involving distracted teen drivers using social media filters at high speeds.
- Harsh penalties imposed on teens caught sexting, with the possibility of imprisonment for up to 15 years.
- The devastating impact of revenge porn, which is considered a felony in many states, especially when victims are under 18.
- Shocking statistics revealing that the average age of entry into sex trafficking in Arizona is just 14.
Our Solution: Empowering You with Proactive Digital Citizenship
The answer to avoiding such dire consequences lies in empowerment and education. We believe that being proactive about your online habits is always better than reacting to the fallout. With our convenient and user-friendly in-person and online educational courses, you can take charge of your digital citizenship journey.
