Social Media in Education/Extension Community

The Social Media in Education/Extension Community is an ASA Community within the Education and Extension Section.

Social media are powerful tools that can be utilized to communicate with large groups of individuals. There is interest in using these tools to provide educational content for both traditional students and extension programs.

This community is designed to facilitate the exchange of ideas, techniques, and usage of social media among educators and extension personnel. Community members are involved in a wide range of disciplines, but share a common interest in utilizing new and emerging social media as a tool for educating traditional and non-traditional students in a wide variety of settings. Members of the community have a range of experience with social media and include individuals with lots of experience in using a variety of social media as well as those who are just becoming aware of the potential of these tools.

We will be having a symposium this year on Monday, November 7th, 2016 related to effectively using social media.  Information related to the symposium is below:
