Full Session Description (as long as you would like):
The Social Media Club is looking to establish a global network of Education Chapters. Each chapter will be based on a campus and operated by faculty, staff, and administrators. Students may also join these chapters. The overarching goal is facilitating social media and digital literacy. This is accomplished both at the campus level and in conjunction with the worldwide SMC network, including student and professional chapters. SMC will be facilitating dialogue, sharing, discussions, presentation and networking on various major common platforms as well as the group’s website. Each channel/platform is open to members worldwide to facilitate global collaboration and sharing.
Part of this literacy includes developing a global perspective via interactions, projects and dialogues with other chapters (and hence cultures) around the world. Chapter activities often include participation of the greater campus communities.
We will also discuss how to start a Social Media Club Education Chapter on your campus.
