As we bring forward our technology programs in school with our 1:1 programs and teach our students how to use technology as an educational tool, it is also imperative for teachers and parents to understand the social side of using and overusing technology with social media tools. Dr Englander presented to parents on December 15, 2016 at the Wellesley Middle School auditorium. The event was funded by the Wellesley Middle School PTO. Her presentation gave parents concrete tips and new perspectives about how to address and educate their children about using social media and how to maximize their social success in school and online.
