#NYCSchoolsTechChat: @jutecht & @mscofino Discuss @#DigitalDrama

Digital drama and confrontations. Educators know it exists, but many haven’t been armed with the tools necessary to ensure their students know how to effectively address the topic with students. Sure, we teach students to pause before they post. But everyone makes mistakes. 

What then?

On Thursday, May 4th at 6 pm, we invite you to join the #NYCSchoolsTechChat where we will discuss #DigitalDrama and confrontation.  Our special guests are Jeff Utecht @jutecht and Kim Cofino @mscofino from @edurolearning, who will, help us discover ideas, strategies, and resources to help students think critically about digital drama and confrontations.
