Engage! It's how we learn

Nothing beats face-to-face interaction, but we cannot deny that it has never been easier to collaborate on projects than it is today. Social media tools are readily available on the internet, and most of them are free for the taking. Using simple resources, we can connect with friends and colleagues more effectively than ever before.

Recently, I was asked to give an introductory course on social networking to a group of Optimist Club and District leaders. With the Optimist International Convention approaching, I thought it might be a good time to share the presentation here as a familiarization tool. I hope it will encourage others to use social networking sites to generate more buzz and connect more readily with those at the event and those at home.


Of course as a Slideshare embed, it doesn't have my narration, but I believe it still tells a full story for beginners. Please be sure to leave comments or ask questions. Engage! It's how we learn.
