Social Media Awareness for Parents

Welcome to the SMACtalk Parent Blog! As parents, we are all raising our children in a digital world that may look different from our own childhoods. Regularly talking with our children about their online world is one of the most important things we can do.

Here you will find videos, thoughts, and other resources curated by thoughtful parents so that we can become better at talking SMAC with our kids. Technology is transforming how and where our students learn. As students spend more time learning and socializing online, we all need to work together to ensure our students stay healthy and safe. The Arkansas Department of Education developed the Social Media Awareness Campaign (SMACtalk) in response to this need. The purpose of SMACtalk is to bring awareness, provide resources, and increase communication.
