In his book, “The Element,” Sir Ken Robinson explains, “Finding your tribe can have transformative effects on your sense of identity and purpose." Too often educators feel alone and isolated. But wait! We have Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, LinkedIn, Google+, Instagram, Foursquare, Flickr, YouTube--- the number of tools and their capabilities is mind-boggling. Unfortunately, many of us either jumped on board these spaces before we determined their scope, or else we allowed them to get out of control. Logging in to many, and managing your valuable time can become exasperating. The tool starts to become more a task-master than an aide for staying in touch, staying informed and sharing information. In this workshop, we’ll explore ten popular social networking sites, determine their capabilities and purpose, and also examine the privacy settings, or lack thereof. We’ll also look at easy steps to “clean up the SN mess”, and get a routine in place so that these tools empowering us rather than drown us in a sea of mismanaged information.

Organizer's note: spots are limited for this session. Please visit the Help Desk at the Symposium to learn more about reserving a seat.
