"KIK" IT WITH YOUR STUDENTS & OTHER WAYS TO STAY IN TOUCH
by Leneita Fix
“Does it work?” one of my children asked.
“Yes, it’s plugged into the phone jack, of course it will work,” their grandmother responded.
“How do I use it?” they sat wide eyed. “Well, you put your finger
in the hole of the first number you want to dial and pull it down until
it stops, do that with every number until the call goes through.” she
“Can I try it?!?” they wanted to know.
This conversation happened last month between my three Middle School
children and their grandmother. She happens to keep an “old fashioned”
rotary phone plugged in. It’s funny to think a generation not only has
never “used” one of these, they can’t recall seeing it before much less
it existing in their home. There was a time when getting in touch with
students was as simple as seeing them in person or picking up a phone…
that was attached to a cord of some kind. Not so any more. In person is still the BEST way to communicate with a student or their parent. However, there are times when we must track them down by other means.
If I want to “know” what’s going on in their lives I have to use
different methods. I think this is true of the “churched” and
It may seem like an oversimplified list, however to be in the know of my students I literally have to use ALL of the following methods:
The “Old” Faithfuls
Phones and email still remain key ways to communicate. I have one
student who loses their phone often, but always checks emails. Another
student will only text me. Now with talk to text options on smart
phones, conversations are made easy. There are times when I just need
to hear their voice. I always make sure to know if they still have a
landline, and who answers it. These are always are starting places in
the dance for communication.
My students may ask if you have an account
on “The Book.” (It’s what some of my youth call it.) Sometimes this is
the best way to get a message to a student, or a simple reminder on
their home page. Starting a youth group page, or events page for trips
is usually the easiest place to get all of your students to check and be
“Kik” is a texting app that can be added
onto a smart phone, ipod or tablet. The reality is not all of my
students have a phone, or their phone service is turned off from time to
time. This texting app allows you to talk to friends as long as you
have “wifi.” Recently, I had a student with no phone, who never checks
Facebook or email. We finally determined she had this account and we
could get her info she needed.
More and more of my students are either
taking down their Facebook pages, or they simply don’t use them. Where
they are at right now is Instagram. If a picture is worth a thousand
words then this is the place for you to “see” what’s going on in the
life of your students.
This may not be true of everyone,
however, most of my students currently do not use Twitter. Vine is the
up and coming video looping site and Pinterest is where we go to gather
information about an idea. However, the truth is if I really want to
“talk” I still approach it “old school,” I show up and see them face to
