1:00 pm – 3:00 pm (eastern)
Originating from the 2011 Penn State Web Conference
For anyone interested in social media, The 3rd annual Higher Education Social Media Summit will be held on June 14, 2011. We will be discussing the latest issues around social media and higher ed.
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 at Penn State, we will be using ustream to stream the event live and allow our virtual attendees to participate in the proceedings. The URL for the summit is http://www.ustream.tv/user/PSUWebConf. For those of you who want to participate on Twitter, delicious, Flickr, etc., the hashtag for the event is #hesms
Discussion topics will be chosen by participants. To facilitate conversation both before, during and after the summit, I have added an instance for the Social Media Summit at the Harvard’s Live Question Tool:
The first two summits were a huge success with several hundred people participating and I am hoping for the same this year.
