One thing I enjoy very much about social media is that it gives me the opportunity to share the good and awesome with my friends and family. Whether it is time together or an accomplishment at school, I love catching it in action.
I was so happy to see my daughter’s pumpkin globe. I taught third grade years ago and now the time and dedication it takes to create this project. The teacher needs to have a lot of patience and the students take a few days to complete it. Making a pumpkin globe is a learning experience that is worthy of sharing. Totally awesome!
While at the NY Botanical Gardens, my youngest decided to put on a puppet show and became a one-man act. In an instant, she created a plot and others started to gather around for her performance. Definitely #ShareAwesome worthy!
The other evening, my mom, sister and I were able to spend time at my grammar school’s fundraisier. I can’t think of when we took a photo together. When I shared this photo, it was nice to see people from the past who were happy to see the three of us together. An awesome moment when I focusing on sisters and daughters.
Being able to take a photo where we are all looking is definitely and Awesome moment. It is such a challenge for all of us to be smiling and looking at the same time. So happy to share this awesome moment.
Today’s families use digital technology in every aspect of life – from learning and socializing, to gaming and shopping! Broad access and use of technology is awesome – and opens so many new opportunities for so many students. But like any aspect of life, there are things you need to know to make positive, safe decisions.
Now that my girls are getting older, I try to stress the importance of sharing the good that is out there. There are too many times where we here of apps and social media moments that have bullied someone or worse. Being open and talking about appropriately using Instagram is one way we talk about social media. I hope that my account can be looked at by her as a “teaching moment”.
