Last Friday, I was privileged enough to pilot season 3 of the BHS Help Desk’s Google Hangout news network, Help Desk Live.

Both Marialice, co-founder of the nation’s first Digital Citizenship Summit, and Mike, published author of Raising a Digital Child and Digital Citizenship in Schools, were eager to talk about the upcoming “DigCit” Summit, as well as discuss how to get students, teachers, and parents involved in the process of digital branding. I want to extend a thank you to both Marialice and Mike for agreeing to our interview, as well as for their contribution to students’ success. The interview is embedded below:
