#NYCSchoolsTechChat: Tech to Connect with Families - Oct 5 at 7pm

We are well into the 2017/18 school year and that means it is time to focus on ideas, tips and strategies for using tech to effectively connect with families.  

#NYCSchoolTech teacher Eileen Lennon (@eileen_lennon) moderates with me throwing in my two cents.

You can prepare for the conversation by thinking about answers to these questions:

Q1. Share tech tools you have used to connect with parents.
Q2. What strategies using tech tools will you implement to connect with parents?
Q3. What support do you need from colleagues to be effective in connecting & communicating with parents?
Q4. Which tech tools can you use with staff for support to connect with parents?
Q5. What challenges have (or could) you face when incorporating tech to connect with parents?
Q6. What are some ideas to overcome challenges one may face when incorporating tech to connect with parents?
