Bring your WiFi-enabled laptop, and be ready for a hands-on, entry-level practical workshop.
We'll teach you the basics of three Web 2.0/social media tools that can improve your personal and professional life:
1. How to use LinkedIn online professional networking more effectively.
2. How to use Twitter for networking & connections in surprising ways.
3. How to use simple online video tools like YouTube to add multimedia to Web sites or blogs.
When you register, we will ask a few questions about your own Web 2.0 background, so that the workshop is focused at the right level. We are limiting class size to 15 people, for the most personalized interaction. Attendees will each receive a USB flash/thumb drive that is preloaded with helpful Web 2.0 links and guidance.
Following the workshop, we'll continue the discussion informally over lunch at a nearby restaurant, for those who are interested. The Every Dot Connects team is also available on LinkedIn, Twitter, our blog and elsewhere online to help you navigate social media.
