Published on

Technology is a powerful equalizer, so much so that the unique contributions of any individual can get lost in the abundant and pervasive repository of information available on the Internet. FutureCasting, a framework of digital life skills, enables gifted students to leverage the Internet to take control of their digital identity, build influence via social media, make contributions that stand out in virtual landscapes, and understand oneself within the context of an online global society. Join us as we explore activities that can be implemented immediately and begin the work of helping students become the hero of their own story!
