This a highly informative conference. I can’t wait to share what I have learned. If you have questions about any of these topics, please contact me.
While at the National Extension Conference, I had an opportunity to catch an informative session on Pinterest given by Amy Hays and Sara Baughman. I also caught the tail end of a session on Instagram also given by Amy Hays. Since I did not see the session in Sacramento, I just finished watching the Instagram session at learn.extension.org; lots of great information. Here is more details on the different sessions:
- Instagram for InstaProgramming – ideas on how a visual app can turn education into impact
- Pinning for Success
Additional sessions worth watching:
- Using Pinterest in Education – A Conversation
- Pinterest for CoPs, County Agents, Specialists, and Outreach Educators
As I mentioned in a previous post, I had a rewarding time while at the Nation Extension Conference. Three of the sessions I attended focused on building and delivering online courses. Basically, I was looking for ideas to make this a reality in the University of Wyoming Extension program.
Here are the presentations I attend along with more information about those sessions:
- Extension Online: Utilizing Technology to Enhance Educational Outreach by Stephen Green.
- How an Engaging Onsite Course Came to Life on the Web by Sharon Gripp, Garo Goodrow and Peg Shuffstall.
- Certificates and Badges to Recognize Online Learning by Larry Lippke.
