Limited Capacity full

The cell phone is the most quickly adopted consumer technology in the history of the world. According to the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project, 91% of adults own a cell phone. In this interactive workshop, participants will explore the latest research on technology usage. Participants will also leave with research driven strategies and tools that empower ELL parents with invaluable information about their district (e.g., DELAC, DAC, etc.), school (e.g., SSC, ELAC, PTA, events, etc.), and classroom (e.g., homework assignments, classroom news, etc.) via cell phones/smart phones.

Come and hear how Selma Unified School District's middle school uses web-based applications to communicate with ELL parents. Also, experience first-hand how teachers use these applications to effectively reach-out to parents. By the end of the workshop, participants will learn and leave with five different free, web-based, applications that will engage and communicate with parents.
