    The Hauppauge School District is proud to present our first topic-based series of Community University workshops for parents. These free workshops are designed to educate our community of the social, emotional and technological issues facing our youth today.

    Community University is a committee comprised of Hauppauge School District teachers, parents and school administrators who have explored Social Emotional Literacy (SEL) programs provided to students in grades K-12. Realizing that SEL programs do not begin or end at the school door, the district has designed workshops to support parents in addressing some of these issues in our children’s lives.

    We hope you will join us for these presentations, as we know that the home/school connection is vital in raising young people who are well-adjusted, resilient and productive citizens.

Murphy will provide an overview of some of the technology tools currently employed in classrooms in the Hauppauge School District.  This "deep dive" into iPads, chromebooks, Google APPS and more will focus on instructional implications, security measures, and long term technology goals currently under discussion in Hauppauge.  Parents will leave with a better understanding of the fundamental shift underway in classrooms and beyond through the use of social media tools, device-agnostic platforms, handheld devices and more.
