How to Shine Online: How your student's online presence may help them get into their dream college or career”:

On Thursday, January 19, 2023, LCUSD hosted a Family Learning Series entitled "How to Shine Online".  This event, presented by Josh Ochs, the founder of Smart Social, shared ways your student can:

  • “discover themselves” and their key strengths, passions, and curiosities towards a prospective college or career and develop those into ideas to put online;
  • shine online by using every app as a positive portfolio of projects and photos;

  • take charge of what information is being shared by Google about them online;

  • turn their Instagram profile into a resume that stands out for colleges/future employers and more.


For those families and staff members who were not able to attend, a copy of the recording is attached below. This is a great workshop to share with your 6th - 12th grade students.
