Social Media Social Good: Social Media Mistakes

#DadChat recently discussed the mistakes we all make in Social Media with expert John Paul Aguiar. Using the transcript as a guide, I wanted to share the best tips and advice we learned from this topic at #DadChat.

Firstly, some overall impressions I took away from the discussion. Social Media is dangerous, to a degree, for all of us.

Change the World with @AngelaMaiers at #DadChat

Kids can change the world

Yeah, it may sound corny to want to change the world, but we can. When we look at the problems in our world, they can seem too big, too overwhelming for any of us to affect. But, when you look at it ONE person at a time, then perhaps it isn’t so daunting! In Judaism, it’s called Tikkun Olam, which roughly means to Repair the World. Jews are asked to do this “one person at a time.” Our kids will be the arbiters of change. We must empower them, lead them, and model for them. That is what we’ll discuss with the inimitable Angela Maiers this Thursday from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PT/9:00 – 10:00 p.m. ET. Your homework is to read her recent column for the Huffington Post, When Students Say They Want to Change the World — Listen to Them!
