How to use your membership WITH your students

Many of the SmartSocial courses are designed for parents, educators, AND students. We encourage you to watch the student and parent/student videos WITH your students so everyone has the same understanding of the dangers and tips for each app.

Parent/educator only videos are not intended for student viewing as we reveal some of the "hidden" features of apps students may already know that adults often don't know about.
