Community presentation to school districts in Washington
With his clear, calm, and compassionate approach, Dr. Sameer Hinduja takes the fear out of cyberbullying and social media use. His family-oriented presentation is exactly what parents, caregivers, and educators need in today's fast-paced, digital world. The best discussion of the subject we have ever seen!

I was interested in bringing Sameer Hinduja to our school after I heard a colleague rave about him. I spoke to my administration who supported bringing Dr. Hinduja to speak to our 5th graders, middle and upper school students and parents. He visited our campus for two days and spoke about social media and cyber bullying in a compassionate and inspirational manner. The students were engaged, laughing as he was able to connect with each age group, and they took away thought provoking questions about who they are and who they want to be. I cannot say enough positive comments about Sameer Hinduja. One 7th grade student commented, “he was the best speaker so far.” A parent stated, “I am SO grateful that you brought him, it is such an important and timely topic.” Dr. Hinduja combined real life scenarios, research, and humor effortlessly. He even presented his own Tik-Tok that he made. I highly recommend Dr. Hinduja to speak to audiences of all ages. He is not only a presenter that will capture your attention but a warm, sensitive, and compassionate human being who I hope to stay in touch with.

We have worked with The Cyberbullying Research Center for over five years, specifically with Justin Patchin and Sameer Hinduja. The information that they provide to our students is always relevant to their lives. Sameer presented the cyber-safety material this year in a way that students can understand and apply it. He maintains a tone of importance and seriousness in the message that relays to them the responsibility they assume while on social media, yet it is not in language or tone that implies blame, nor does it resemble lecture. Our teachers reported that students were really focused and enjoyed the presentation. The material from The Cyberbullying Research Center is alway fresh and discusses the most recent apps and devices that our 2021, pandemic students are using to communicate. We will call upon Sameer and Justin in the future.

Dr. Hinduja delivered smart, informative, compelling presentations that gave the audiences much to consider. Each presentation was tailored to the particular perspective of middle school students, high school students, and parents; they definitely hit the mark. Additionally, as a faith-based school, I appreciated the spiritual grounding Sameer was able to share with students. Highly recommended!
