I can’t even believe it, friends, but (gulp!) school is around the corner.
And before we know it, our schedules will be kicked into high gear. Afternoons and evenings will be filled with homework, activities, projects, meetings, and more, and our lazy days of summer will be a quickly fading memory.
But guess what?
There are a ton of apps out there that can really simplify your life and make your kids’ screen time more productive. Really.
And to get an early jump on the back to school rush, I’ll be chatting about these apps and more on twitter this week. And I want you to join me!
On Thursday July 23 at 8pm ET, join the #BTSTech chat and learn some great tips for how technology can simplify your life as your kids head back to school.
Here’s the skinny. . .
