Social Media 101 with Smart Girl Society

Learn how to Support Special Needs Kids on Social Media

The Ollie Webb Center is hosting a seminar called “Social Media 101 – Supporting Individuals with Special Needs on Social Media” on Thursday, February 22 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM at the UNO Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center (Room 6001).

Reservations are required.  CLICK HERE to register.

Those of us that support individuals with disabilities want to be able to use the most modern technology to offer assistive technology to our family members with special needs. And they, like their typical peers, want to be included and involved in Social Media.

Now more than ever, it is time for parents to get smart about technology and social media. We must keep our families safe from the pitfalls of being connected 24/7.

This workshop will be instrumental in educating and inspiring parents to have meaningful conversations, make informed decisions about their family’s technology and social media usage and provide guidance in using social media to adults with disabilities.

In this workshop, you will learn about: Instagram, Snapchat,, Facebook, Twitter, FOMO, Geotagging, Six-Clicks, digital footprints, COPPA, and more.

Presenter: Amie Konwinksi, Founder and CEO of Smart Girl Society.

I was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska (GO BIG RED) and live there with my wife Mindi and our 5-year old son, Alex. Alex was diagnosed on the Spectrum in the Spring of 2014. Originally non-verbal, Alex has made massive leaps in speech and motor development thanks to local therapists, teachers, assistants and countless recreational and educational activities available to residents of the Omaha area. I promise to work hard and make sure you are aware of everything available to you and your special needs children.
