This Thursday and Friday, I’ll be headed along with many other folks to the TechFiesta 2013 Conference being held at the ESC-20 in San Antonio, Texas! There, I’ll have the chance to present several sessions on a variety of topics.
Here are the topics along with a short description and links to content! I hope you’ll drop by so we can have a learning conversation about content curation, sharing campus stories, and more!
What is content curation? It’s a way of managing the firehose of information slamming into use from every device we own, from computer to smart phone. This workshop will introduce you to some of the ways you can better manage a world of content, not just online but offline as well. If you are always trying to keep track of web sites, bookmarks, information, then this session will help you get a handle on it all! Of course, you may have a tiger by the tail!
