View this edWebinar to explore how to start preparing now for a successful back-to-school by connecting schools and families online, all while navigating communication with the first-ever fully digital-native parent community. Charles Field, CEO of School Family Media, and Kara Stern, Resident Educator at Smore, discuss how technology and communication apps are breaking down barriers that have limited parent engagement in the past and how, when schools return this fall, those same technologies will be equally crucial as the digital transformation in education continues.
They share insights into parent expectations from their daily conversations with parent group leaders, teachers, and district staff, and discuss ways teachers and schools can become a successful part of this digital leap forward. This recorded edWebinar is of interest to teachers and school and district leaders of the PreK-8 grades.
