- Richard Culatta, CEO, International Society for Technology in Education (ITSE)
Join us for this one-hour webinar as we reflect on how to support healthy communication for students across all digital communications. As we continue to increase our connections with each other across the globe, it is essential that educators share best practices for a healthy digital community when connecting with others. While some may have focused on what students should not do with technology, this webinar will highlight how we can empower students to be successful with their digital communications.
In this webinar, participants will
- Learn practical examples and conversation starters from Richard Culatta’s book Digital for Good: Raising Kids to Thrive in the Online World.
- Hear from a Harmony SEL partner who has successfully incorporated healthy online practices into their daily instruction.
- Connect this topic with the Lessons and Activities in our new unit, Communicating with Each Other in Harmony Third Edition.
Participants who join the webinar live will have an opportunity to win a copy of Richard Culatta’s new book Digital for Good: Raising Kids to Thrive in the Online World.
