This webinar will examine the definitive ways colleges are using social media to recruit and vet students and will then deliver pragmatic instruction on how to counsel students (and their parents) to curate a compelling and informative public digital presence. Curation is about knowing what to display publicly and what should remain private. Students can be taught that digital artifacts which demonstrate their interests, achievements, service, and skill could be both public and identifiable.
The chances that a student’s social media activities will be scrutinized at some point during the transition from high school to college and then from college to career is closing in on 100%. Learning how to use social media tools advantageously to create and disperse an authentic, reflective, discoverable, and informative digital presence has become an essential life skill that is rarely taught in schools.
