Show Notes and Quotes:
Engaging students more and more on social media cannot be just what happens during this Covid-19 season, it must continue to happen long after this season is over.
Intentionality has been a major theme for this quarantine season. Students want to know you care and still want to interact and learn during this difficult season.
