Thinking Forward. Moving Forward.

It's funny how the students are now teaching the professionals. Paull Young of Converseon talked about the young generation of bloggers and the power they have. We're the first generation of global communicators, we have a lot of weight on our shoulders. It's very important to have social media skills and global communication skills. It now starts with the educators teaching social media and also students going out and teaching themselves via Web sites such as Google and Blogger.

Advice from Paull:

To students: Get involved in the online conversation now!
Educators: Extend class room hours to students.
Practitioners: Keep doing what you're doing.

Join the conversation!
