Resources, stories, and connections with those who use social media in today’s k-12 classrooms

Thank you to the 300+ folks from around the world who joined me for the Common Sense Media Digital Citizenship webinar on EdWeb. In case you missed it, the webinar was called “Social Media: An Essential Tool for Today’s Classroom.” You can view the webinar here http://www.instantpresenter.com/edwebnet/EA59D688824C.

In the webinar, I shared case studies of amazing students, parents, and teachers. Below are the people behind the stories I mentioned, how to learn more and a way to reach each of them via social media.
