Sean Smith

Sean is a Professional Social Media Educator with a focus on helping parents, teachers, and teens understand how to use their Social Media effectively. He is a passionate advocate for Cyber Safety and fighting Cyber-Bullying and is working towards getting Social Media Education added to the school curriculum in BC. He also speaks to professional organizations and at conferences about effective use of Social Media.

Sean lives in Campbell River BC with his wife and two teenage boys.

 
 

When Sean Smith realized that businesses were struggling to find employees that were able to handle their Social Media tools he realized that we were dealing with a whole generation that has grown up teaching themselves how to use these new tools but had never been taught. Schools and teachers aren't equipped to fill this gap yet so Sean started developing the Digital Hallway project, an online resource for parents, teachers, and teens. That is the topic of today's episode.
