SCHOOL COUNCILS WORKSHOP
Communication 3.0: Beyond the Bulletin Board
This workshop digs deeper into the home-school communication, looking at the need for clear communication channels and the role technology plays in improving communication to include:
- social media
- cloud based apps e.g. Class Dojo, Edmodo
Our Tech and Social Media workshops are designed to inspire and empower parents to explore and harness the power of digital technology and social media tools to make their families more tech savvy and to support their children’s success in the ever-changing digital world.
Developed for parents who are just starting on their digital journey, the hands-on workshops will focus on introducing new technologies and tools, showcasing their use and benefits as well as potential risks, and providing practical tips and activities to take home. The workshops can be offered together or individually.
Jocelyn is a parent volunteer and education advocate with lofty ideas. She is a strong proponent of raising digitally-responsible children
It’s hard to imagine but at one time, her presence in school council meetings were frowned at as council members find her approach to managing meetings too structured. Little they knew that her years of experience and expertise as corporate board liaison comes in to play when running school councils.
She had been a council secretary, a co-chair, a communications committee lead, an events volunteer and a grant seeker and writer for her children’s schools.
