Student Messaging Apps and a Snapchat Demo for Parents

This was a presentation I gave on apps that international students use for messaging online. I talk about the functionality, popularity and geographic influence on these popular apps. Then I finish with a demo of Snapchat’s basic functions for parents.

This was originally broadcast on a Google Hangouts on Air, but we audio problems and the recording didn’t turn out well.

Integrating Digital Citizenship - International Teacher Magazine

I had the pleasure of writing another article for International Teacher Magazine by Consilium Education. My article, Integrating Digital Citizenship, talks about the work I do in schools around integrating Digital Citizenship and 21st Century Learning skills into curriculum. Most Digital Citizenship programs are done as add-ons to learning or part of a Tech or counseling program. With the award winning system I developed, Digital Citizenship is embedded into all grades, subjects, and lessons.
