Starting a Social Media Conversation with Kids - Jo(e) Social Media Inc.
June 9, 2021 at 8:00 pm
Adults and kids are using social media in two very different ways, and many kids don’t feel like they can approach an adult with their problems, or even the things they’re excited about.
Jo(e) Social Media, Inc. is committed to bridging this gap and doing everything they can to start a positive social media conversation in homes.
This presentation is similar to the conversation they have in schools. The difference? Jo(e) will share with you the answers the kids have given them and offer tips and solutions on where adults can help.
Jo Phillips and Joe Whitbread have been working with schools across Alberta since 2016 and have volunteered their time in many Schools and communities in the past several years.
The Jo(e)s have spoken with more than 34,000 kids from grades 4 to 12 and in each school, regardless of grade, the feedback is the same. Kids have fun and they feel validated and heard. As well, teachers express gratitude for the message, and appreciate some much-needed perspective, regarding this world our kids are living in.
“We bring a positive message, not focused on fear but instead on possibility and guidance.”
