1:00 pm - 3:00 PM (Eastern)
Originating from the 2009 Penn State Web Conference
Come join me at this virtual summit as we explore the challenges and opportunities of social media in higher education. The format will be much different than a typical workshop. Following the principles of an unconference, we will leverage the wisdom of the crowd in an open environment where everyone's participation is encouraged.
In addition to those attending in person we will be using Adobe Connect to stream the event live and allow our virtual attendees to participate in the proceedings. The URL for the summit is http://breeze.psu.edu/psuwebsms
Update, June 8
: You will need to create a "Friends of Penn State Account" to participate. A link and instructions are available at http://breeze.psu.edu/psuwebsms
We will will be utilizing social media to create a backchannel to let people from across the globe participate virtually. For those of you who want to participate on Twitter, delicious, Flickr, etc., the hashtag for the event is #smsummit
I have added an instance for the Social Media Summit at the Harvard’s Live Question Tool:
Please submit your questions and vote and reply to existing questions. I plan on using the information gathered to drive our live discussion on June 9.
