Engaging the WHOLE Community with Technology
Today’s technology can be overwhelming for parents and educators alike, but it doesn’t have to be! This session will focus on using technology to help build trust and partnership within school communities – including educators, parents, and students! Technology can and should be a cornerstone in unifying your community across all barriers, including socio-economics, language, and much more. We will focus on best practices learned across Title I schools that have started over 4 million conversations in 100+ languages. The unifying REST framework will be presented in the context of using private social media to connect all community members in a single, safe location to collaborate and achieve student success. Join us to learn simple, executable steps to identify and implement the right technology to engage your WHOLE community!
