[Training] Building Connections Virtually

Youth have been interacting online with each other for quite some time. So how do we as educators connect with them while modeling healthy behaviors? Building connections through the digital space can be challenging, this 1-hour AzCASE virtual workshop will teach you strategies to get, and maintain students’ attention online. Virtual learning and youth programs can take place when we use the digital space creatively and with the holistic child in mind.
