A one-day conference and program of events on Saturday, March 5, 2011, from 9:00AM – 3:30 PM, at the USF campus in San Francisco that features “New Tools You Can Use for the Public Good.”
Just updated 03.04.11:
We’re featuring presenters like Susan Piper, who will share her thoughts on creating a communications infrastructure for the City of Oakland that incorporates social media, and Kwan Booth who will talk about how the Oakland Local website uses social media to make journalism more of a two-way dialogue. We’ll also hear from Ana-Marie Jones, who will discuss how her organization uses social media as it trains and supports nonprofits and their special needs clients in disaster preparedness, response and recovery activities, and Alicia Upano of “Not In Our Schools,” a peer-to-peer learning program that uses social media to provide students and teachers with real tools to counter hate and create respectful environments on their campuses.
Also the Aspiration team will facilitate the “fundamentals of social media” sessions that include “Facebook and Twitter 101”, “Intro to blogging”, “Beginning and Intermediate WordPress”, “Listening Online with a Social Media Dashboard”, “Managing Online Channels with a Publishing Matrix”, and “How to Build a Good Nonprofit Web Site for Almost Nothing.”
