Presenter: Anne Reamer

Session ID: 216

Through our use of one-to-one devices utilizing social media and video, we can raise awareness for students to get out and discover things about their own community they would otherwise never be exposed to in the closed-off world of their own neighborhoods. This is especially of utmost importance to our student populations suffering from the effects of poverty. By investigating items such as social awareness, social justice, opinions, conducting polls, and even investigating the things on campus and off, that evoke deeper meaning. Everyone must know that stereotypes can be broken for students of poverty. This is the stage to break that outlook. Look at us, we are bright kids, we can learn, and we can make it! During this session, participants will learn about apps, programs, and equipment as well as fundraising ideas to support your program.
