Making Connections

From Great Blogger Suzy Brooks:

A month or so ago, I attended a Common Core conference at UMass Boston, and if you remember correctly, I said there was so much about that day that would inspire future newsletters… Here’s one, now!

One of the topics discussed was the necessity for adults to have a strong understanding of social media. Though technology skills do not come easily to some parents and educators, it is essential for us to learn more than our children already know. We need to proactively lead our children through this online journey, instead of reactively chasing them down the road. Whether we plan to allow our children to use social media or not, it is critical for adults to be aware of what is out there.
