Abstract: Schools around the United States have increased their use of digital technology in classrooms, but it remains uncertain if students of the 21st century are knowledgeable of how to use these digital tools safely, ethically, and responsibly. Similarly, many adults are not up-to-speed with the changing technological developments of this century and may not be prepared to discuss cyber safety and ethics issues with young technology users. With cyber victimization and other cyber dangers increasing among teenagers, it becomes more evident that it is important for both parents and educators to understand cyber safety and accept joint responsibility for keeping students safe on and offline. Using a mixed-methods design, I investigated the effects of a parent and educator workshop focused on cyber safety awareness, digital citizenship knowledge, teacher and parent cyber safety self-efficacy, and attitudes toward home and school collaboration around proactive cyber safety solutions. The results of this study provide insight into how parents and educators can increase their awareness of the cyber dangers that exist in a 21st century cyber world and how they can work together to reduce these dangers. This study highlights the value of creating collaborative school cyber safety action teams that can allow school stakeholders the opportunities to work together to keep all technology users safe. Cyber safety rules and digital citizenship are skills that must be taught. Not only do young technology users need to learn these 21st century skills, but parents and educators should be equipped with these skills as well.
