Good, Bad, and Ugly of Social Media
Presented by: Andrew Lambert

In the fast pace world of technology, it seems like so many Americans are living online, connected to their phones, and communicating through the latest apps or messaging services.  People want to interact, but are now doing it in a new way.  What does that mean for you?

In this session, we'll examine some of the latest trends that can both help or hurt you inside the classroom or in your personal life.  Topics will include the argument between PowerPoint vs. Prezi Presentations, history of Facebook and what you should know about your privacy rights, why MySpace has disappeared, and why any working professional should be using Linked-In.  We'll also talk about the impact of smart phones and the app phenomenon that has swept the Nation. 

Bring your questions, and prepare for a high spirited session.  Whether you're a die hard tech fan or just starting to ease into this topic, this session will be one that has you walking away with new information to better your life.
