    I am not into Social Networks, but regard myself as “connected in the digital world”. I understand its value, importance and need for our students. I regard myself as fairly private and do not necessarily need to know who is doing what at what minute / second! I would rather look at someone in the eye, read their body language and speak to others in person when possible. I believe these skills are still necessary in our world!
