If you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed by the pace of technological change, especially in comparison to the tech-savvy younger generation, you’re not alone. School-aged kids effortlessly adapt to and welcome every new piece of technology that comes their way. To effectively connect with this tech-savvy demographic, it’s crucial to meet them on their turf, which is often in the realm of technology and things like SMS communication.
