Learn these 3 Surprising Ways You can Use Facebook to Teach Social Skills


Live Webinar: 3 Ways to Use Facebook to Teach Workplace Socialization and Online Safety

How Schools Use Curriculum & Technology to Teach Appropriate Social Skills for Employment

Did you know that in today’s tech-driven economy there’s been an 83% growth in jobs that now require a high level of social skills? On this free live webinar, Michele McKeone, M. Ed., will discuss how you can use Facebook to teach both appropriate online behavior and in-demand social skills.

Whether posting, commenting or sharing photos on sites like Facebook, students with cognitive disabilities need explicit instruction on appropriate online behavior. These socialization examples can be used to generalize the behavior into other settings, such as the workplace and help students become self-advocates for their independence.

Here’s What You’ll Learn on the Webinar:

Social Media & Social Skills in the Workforce: According to Pew, people can earn 40% more per hour by learning social skills -- just imagine what this could do to help a student gain life independence as they transition from the classroom to the workforce.

Teaching Appropriate Online Behavior: Learn how to use platforms like Facebook to teach your students how to distinguish between appropriate vs inappropriate sharing behaviors.

Generalizing Social Skills: How to enhance the generalization of social skills and teach the literacy required for students to successfully socialize online and during peer-to-peer exchanges.

Teaching Self-advocacy: How people with cognitive disabilities can use social media to explore professional interests, connect with others and truly become self-advocates.

Whether posting, commenting or sharing photos on sites like Facebook, students with cognitive disabilities need explicit instruction on appropriate online behavior. These socialization examples can be used to generalize the behavior into other settings, such as the workplace and help students become self-advocates for their independence.
