The Unconference by SMCSAC
Friday, July 20, 2012 from 12:45 PM to 5:00 PM (PDT)
The Social Media Club Sacramento and the College of Continuing Education at Sacramento State are proud to present the 2012 Social Media UnConference (#SMCSacUn). A day of breakout discussions about just what you want to talk about!
What is an UnConference?
An unconference is similar to any other well organized conference except for two critical points -- 1. the agenda is determined by the attendees at the beginning of the conference, 2. attendees at an unconference interact with and create active parts of the conversation.
"The term “unconference” arose as people in the technology industry started making conferences that stepped out of the traditional models, which had involved presentations selected months beforehand, panels of speakers, industry sponsors talking about their products, and “trade show” exhibits." -- Source: Unconference.net
Our unconference will center around any aspect of social media that you'd like to discuss -- social media and education, how to use a certain social media network, social media metrics, podcasting, social video, developing social media tool, using tools, whatever!
