What's all this social media nonsense? Using cross-sector examples of social media in action DK will show how organizations are utilizing social media to humanize their brand and leveraging the power of social principles to achieve wider learning opportunities such as the ability to connect with experts across the world.
What is the value of this to educators? DK will illustrate that while Twitter and blogs are two examples of social media, there are many more examples to be adapted and adopted. We know the world is different now but what's really changed for young people? What are the opportunities for educators to explore the use of social media and how does this approach challenge the traditional model of education.

Breakfast will be served at 7.45am, with DK beginning the discussion at 8am. He will wrap things up around 9am but you are invited to stay and chat with DK, CORE staff and one another after the seminar.


DK joined CORE Education in July as the company's first Social Media Manager after recently emigrating from the UK where he was the Founding Director of the highly successful MediaSnackers.

MediaSnackers inspire people to learn, work and live differently with social media. This work has included developing and delivering social media training for teachers and youth services, devising brand raising strategies for national government departments and social media marketing strategies for games manufacturers. Recent clients have included the Welsh Assembly, UNICEF and The Gates Foundation.

DK has also created Social Media For Suits, a personalized mentoring for CEOs and executives who want to understand and effectively use social media.
