Internet Safety: Digital Media Literacy for Newcomers

As a newcomer to Canada, you may find yourself searching for information online to assist in the settlement process. Unfortunately, phishing scams and unreliable sources of information are quite common online, and these may be especially hard to spot given that they can look quite legitimate. Phishing scams, in particular, pose a risk to your identity, finances, and computer.
This webinar, “Internet Safety: Digital Media Literacy,” on February 19th, 2020, from 9:00 am-10:00 am EST is designed to educate and empower you to use the internet more safely. This webinar will include:
• an introduction to what digital media literacy is
• phishing scams, including some red flags to watch out for
• fake news, with a focus on clickbait
• strategies to recognize legitimate websites and information
