Our kids know something we don’t…

Oakland Schools

It’s been part of their world for as long as they can remember…

Oakland Schools

It powers their communication, their school work, their friendships, their love life…

Oakland Schools

Sometimes it TURNS on them with global force. Sometimes they unleash it on themselves…

Oakland Schools

Because there are NO RULES…

Oakland Schools

Our kids know they live in a SOCIAL MEDIA CULTURE (there is no ‘opt out’), where a single MISSTEP looks like this…

Oakland Schools

And our parental online-tsunami PROTECTION looks like this…

Oakland Schools They’ve been traversing the social media ‘scape ALONE…

Oakland Schools

 But now they’ve got US: Moms, Dads, Guardians, Teachers, Principals…

Oakland Schools

WE can help them figure out the no-rule RULES, the culture they live in, the power of the internet, the alluring ‘connect’ of social media and the incredible reach of their future…

Oakland Schools

WE, parents and educators, can TEACH our children how to harness that online tsunami, once we understand what we’re up against.
