Social Media & Higher Ed

How often are you in contact with your professional learning network (PLN)?  Twice a year at conferences?  Maybe at staff retreats each semester?  There is so much going on in higher education all over the world, that it is important to have a finger on the pulse of the field as regularly as possible.

In this session we will use Twitter to construct a PLN, starting from the basics (what is a hashtag, anyway?).  Tweet, follow, and connect with other experts in the field.

We will also discuss ways in which you can use social media to connect with institutions and students, including real time platforms such as Google Hangouts.
