eXtension National Conference 2010: Social Media

on Wednesday, October 27, 2010

The 2010 eXtension National Conference: Symposium On Workjng Differently was held October 18-21. Video recordings of the presentations are now available at http://www.extension.iastate.edu/broadcasts/nevc/.

The overwhelming majority of these presentations concern the use of social media and networking sites to engage communities, and are being moderated by Extension professionals who are successfully using these tools for outreach.

If you are interested in using social media for the dissemination of Extension programming, I highly recommend these recordings.

Among the many topics discussed:

  • Becoming Visible in the New Media Ecology
  • Educating Others about Social Networking
  • Engaging Learners Through Social Media Outreach: Working Smarter, Not Harder
  • Assessing Impact of eXtension or Social Media Programming
  • Using a Blog to Reach Master Gardeners
  • 3D Immersive Educational Opportunities in Second Life
