We will be delivering a special workshop at IECA's Fall Conference in Washington, DC:
"Appreciating Social Media's Probative Role in College Admissions and Scholarship Decisions"
The role social media is playing in college admissions and scholarship decisions is growing, but its impact is often misunderstood. Is social media a negative to be avoided or a positive to be nurtured? Recent articles by The New York Times and CNN have highlighted how a reflective social media presence with content showcasing a student's activities, work product, accomplishments and service are favorably impacting admissions decisions. This session will explore the reasons why advising students to clean, hide or shut down their social media for college admissions is misleading and why working with students to build a digital portfolio for colleges to see is a compelling 21st century strategy.
Please mark your calendar and join us on November 16th at 3:30 pm. We look forward to seeing you there!
