Webinar Offers Schools Tips for Using Social Media to Engage Parents

A growing number of schools are experimenting with social media—from Facebook to Twitter to text messages—as a way to engage parents. Education Week will explore those strategies in a webinar being held tomorrow, Thursday, at noon, Eastern. You can register for the event here.

The event is being hosted by my colleague Nora Fleming, who recently wrote a story on social media and parent engagement. She will be joined by Joseph Mazza, the principal of Knapp Elementary School, in North Penn, Pa., and Elisabeth Stock, chief executive officer and co-founder of Computers For Youth.

On a related note, in case you missed it, Education Week held an online chat, "Tapping the Power of Social Networking for Education," yesterday. You can read the transcript of readers' discussion with Kyle Pace, an instructional technology specialist in the Lee's Summit school district in Missouri.
