Science and Tech Opportunities for Teens and Tweens

Science and Technology Opportunities For #Kids #MLTVkids #STEMMy 11 year-old daughter is a self described “Geek”. I discouraged her, worrying that the word carries far too much negative connotation. But as usual she is schooling me, embracing the word in her own way, pushing the boundaries of its’ outdated definition. Jaedyn is a young black female focused on science, history and the technology that opens a bigger window to both.  [Read more...]

Stop Condemning Social Media and Start Teaching It

#SocialMedia Should Be Taught Not Feared #MLTVsocial

I’m really tired of hearing people complain about the social feeds of young people when they are doing nothing to teach those same kids how to engage in social effectively. I especially get frustrated when the complainers are people who don’t have any real social acumen themselves. How can you judge something you don’t even know how to use? [Read more...]

Miss Lori Is Going Mobile With Walmart #Shop #MLTVtips

 

With Mother’s Day on the horizon gifts are on my mind, and hopefully on the minds if my kids, (if they know what’s good for them.) But sometimes to get the best gift you have to give it to yourself. That’s why I have been researching the cheapest wireless plans for the last several weeks. However, the more I’ve learned the more frustrated I’ve become. I feel like a slave to my wireless plans, tethered to it not by choice, but by necessity. Yes, my world is fueled by social media, but our collective world is increasingly dependent on cell phones, and wireless accessibility. That’s why when Collective Bias invited me to participate in a Walmart #FamilyMobile shop I jumped at the chance to try the unlimited talk text and data/web service and hopefully find the best Mother’s Day gift for, well, ME! Ok, me and my family. [Read more...]

The calendar says that it’s Spring, but as I look out my window I am thinking Mother Nature didn’t get the memo. OR maybe she is on strike. OR maybe she is frozen somewhere in a snow bank and can’t get free. Wherever she is I miss her, desperately, as I know so many of you living in this prolonged Winter do as well. [Read more...]
