The Social Media-School Gap

In this podcast, I speak with Annie Fox about social media and its use by students. We talk about better approaches to take with our kids as parents and educators regarding smartphones, student behavior, and the pros and cons of these tools for communication. At the end of the podcast, I offer a few strategies for anyone who is trying to raise a child in the connected age. (This podcast is partly a promotion of my new book from ASCD.)

Enjoy!
