Interpreter Summer Institute- KEEPING UP WITH THE MILLENNIALS: Social Media, LGBTQ+, Violence, & Suicide
June 8 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Our world has changed drastically over the years; we’ve gone from TTYs & beepers to VRS & Facebook. Whether it’s learning the new slang or figuring out how to use a hashtag, professionals and parents need to keep up! In this workshop, we will cover some of the most challenging topics in our world today: social media, bullying, abuse, slang, dangerous apps, texting, LGBTQ+, suicide, and more. The social environment of schools today is much different than it was even ten years ago and those working in education (or have kids who are currently in school) need to be prepared as much as possible.
