Would you like to engage parents so that they are more involved in your school and with their children's education? There are many online tools that can help us communicate with and learn from others daily. Tools like Twitter, Facebook, and Google Plus are used by students and parents to connect with their friends, loved ones, and celebrities. Schools can use these platforms and more to inform, involve, and engage parents. Join Shelly Terrell as she shares examples of how these tools are being used by schools, suggestions on how to get parents to embrace these tools, and tips on how to avoid potential problems.
