Communicating in a social media savvy world. In a society where 95% of all teens aged 12-17 are online it is vital to give them tips and strategies to navigate the online world well[1]. This generation are connected 24/7 yet are often poor communicators. In this seminar we addresses the power of social media but also teach students to beware of the traps, we also cover the importance of real friendships, not just those online and the truth that you are worth more than the amount of likes you get, along with the fact that pictures say a thousand words, challenging students about what their pictures say about them.
