Are you trying to understand the buzz around social media and questioning what it really means for your school?
Do you need a better grasp of the benefits and challenges of social media before jumping in? Join your fellow educators and school administrators at edSocialMedia’s Summit this winter at Beaver Country Day School in Chestnut Hill, MA and dive into the theory and practice of social media.
Come and be part of the dialog as we explore and discover the potential of social media to transform the way schools communicate and educate. This Summit is shaping up to be the place where the best practices in social media uses in schools are shared, discussed and disseminated with colleagues from around the country.

Experiences in the Use of Social Media to Advance Educational Institutions
Lessons learned at Oberlin College & M.I.T & how they can help to inform your school’s social media outreach.
Ben Jones, VP for Communications at Oberlin College and former Director of Communications for the MIT Office of Admissions, will share his experiences in using social media to advance the goals and priorities of educational institutions while extending their reach to all audiences, from prospective students to alumni. In addition to a discussion of the “what” (the blogosphere, Facebook, Twitter, etc.), Ben will also address the “why” (generational shifts in communications priorities and the influence of the internet on an institution’s brand and credibility) and the “how” (the importance of truth and transparency in the era of Google).
The presentation will include tips for successful management of social media initiatives, and plenty of time will be reserved for group discussion and questions.
