Safe Teens Online is pleased to invite our newest addition to the STO family, Baldwin School of Puerto Rico, to the global effort on educating teens on cyber safety related risks and preventions.
As our first Puerto Rican school, Baldwin School of Puerto Rico brings together hundreds of talented students in a resource rich learning environment. As an IB (international baccalaureate) school, Baldwin School prizes initiative and hard work with faculty and learners. The Baldwin community fosters international mindedness and accomplishments in the arts, service, and athletics.
The COVID pandemic didn’t just casually bump into the human population in early March of 2020, it came at us like a raging, category 5 hurricane. People were helpless in havoc all around. Radical change had become the new norm. Overnight, schools switched entirely online.
It was definitely difficult for everyone to adapt. Everyone had to learn to navigate through their new environments and learn what was safe and healthy for them versus what was not. Of course, making this change came with some immense risks.
With Safe Teens Online, students will become familiar with changes in the technology landscape through project-based learning and activities. They will have their peers educate them, and will have a sense of peer to peer community emphasized. They will have opportunities to share their unique perspectives with peers and bring the voice of the users to companies, government authorities, educators and other stakeholders around the world.
We congratulate the Baldwin School of Puerto Rico for taking this massive leap forward in inviting their students in such important topics and leadership opportunities. Siona “Dolly” Pramoda is leading the initiative under the tutelage of Ms. Victoria Banks, Ms. Maite Goyco, and Ms. Zacha Ortiz. We are excited to be a part of the Baldwin digital education community and journey.
