Future of education is self directed. Much like other aspects of our lives... Digital disruption can be scary, but will change the way future generations will conduct their every day lies. And this is one small example of it. Sharing information at a global scale.

Hmmm... Sounds like what the industrial revolution did.
Thx for pushing this out to google + Tim. Good stuff!
 
diy.org is a wonderful site for kids to learn the skills of making, and to share what they've made and how they did it.  These short films highlight the stories of some of these young makers.

G'morning!

I'm putting together a REQUIRED training for all departments and programs who already have or want to create college-associated Facebook pages. I'm calling it "Facebook Administration Training." I plan to go over Facebook Pages vs. Groups, help them to determine if they NEED a page, make sure they understand what all is involved, and then go into strategy, management and tools. If I do this right, it could save me from many headaches in the future.

Have any of you done trainings like this before? Do you have any advice or suggestions of topics I should make sure to cover (or avoid)? Any tools or strategies people are using at your school that work? I'm concerned I'm going to throw too much information at them. Many of these people are serious beginners. I don't want to totally discourage them from using social media (don't want them going rogue). I want to provide them with tools and trainings that will empower them to use it and be as successful as possible.

Thanks!

For every generation, there are fears placed in parent's thoughts... That they are not doing 'right' for their children. Now - it is 'digital' .

Hello all! I wanted to share a project +Chapman University launched to the campus last Monday. We created a marketing campaign to generate some "buzz" about our new Social.Chapman.Edu, a hub for all things social. Right now, we are still in beta. We plan to add G+, Pinterest, and YouTube to the live feed during version 2. Our goal was to display a live feed of social information and campus interactions to keep students and alumni connected, but also list approved university social media sites. Feel free to check it out!
