Jie Ming family members - here are some resources from smartsocial.com around digital well-being as we are faced with more time indoors and likely more time on screens. Be well, and feel free to engage with any of this material (looks like lots of it is free!). Thank you Michael Recycle (Stoick) for sharing this!

SmartSocial.com is looking for teenage students to talk about the positive impact TikTok is having on their lives right now.
  • Who are you most inspired by on TikTok?
  • How are you using TikTok to share positivity with others?
  • We will compile all of the student responses into a video and article that other students can watch and learn from
We are hosting two online forums for teens (ages 13 to 18) to share their ideas. They will be held this Friday, 3/27 at 11am PST and 2pm PST. Parents with interested students - please reply back to this email for a link to the online forum. If your student cannot make it to either forum, but would like to submit a videotaped response to the questions above, please reply to this post and we will send you instructions.
 
Are your students chatting with friends on the HouseParty app or Marco Polo? Look out for Thursday's newsletter for details about the most popular chat apps students are using right now. Reply back if you have a question about a specific app. I read every email. 

Thanks for your support.
