Young people often tune out when educators and parents talk to them about how to use social media responsibly. Learn how to transform difficult conversations with students into meaningful connections.
In this edWebinar, best-selling author, educator, and thought leader Rosalind Wiseman shares:
- The latest insights into how young people are using social media
- Its impact on their social dynamics
- How to have conversations about social media so they don’t tune out
With the right approach, these conversations can be transformed into powerful opportunities for positive teacher-student connection and engagement. Educators, administrators, and counselors serving middle and high school students are invited to watch this recorded session.
