As schools and districts seek to communicate with stakeholders, we often go around the one audience central to our work: students. While we may communicate to students through their parents, the effort is largely one way. This edWebinar challenges that paradigm to use strategic communication efforts to engage students using authentic two-way communication.
This recorded presentation will be of interest to PR and communication leaders, superintendents, principals, and teachers.
