If words like “social networks” and “texting” make you feel uncomfortable and confused, it’s time to take some steps towards understanding the technology. These words are part of a student’s life and everyday vocabulary. Connected Culture will define these subjects in plain english, explain their uses and describe how you can utilize this media to your advantage and your schools’ advantage. Do you really understand Facebook, Twitter and search engines? These topics and more will be covered in Connected Culture so that you can learn how to harness their power to connect with the Digital Generation.
Digital media is such a huge part of students’ lives that in order to connect, communicate and interact with them you must have a greater understanding of the internet and mobile technology. Connected Culture is the way for you to make that connection and bridge the technological communication gap.

Students today won’t open up an encyclopedia to do research for a paper. They’ll Google the topic to conduct their research. Today’s students will text message and instant message. They will use “LOL” in their everyday speech. They connect through Facebook, MySpace and YouTube. They are focused on media and devices that will allow them to connect and socialize with one another at a moments’ notice.
So how do you connect with these students who appear to exist in a whole different world than you have come to understand? As administrators, it is vital to understand how today’s students communicate and socialize. In the next post, I’ll discuss why this understanding is so important and how Connected Culture will help you connect with the Digital Generation.
