    128. 128. Activate brand inside out<br /><ul><li>In place of “the voice of authority,” they [employees, clients and partners] demand proof of authenticity … We will need to help the organization empower and enable our people to communicate with one another, to make decisions and to act on their own ideas and opportunities. – The Authentic Enterprise – Arthur W. Page Society
    129. 129. Blur lines between Sprint Space (internal blog) and i-Connect (company-wide intranet), ratchet up activity to drive authenticity and engage key employee influencers:

Applying the NETS standards<br />Creativity and Innovation<br /><ul><li>Students demonstrate creative thinking, construct knowledge, and develop innovative products and processes using technology. </li></ul>Group<br />Justin<br />So, what do you think?...<br />Students develop/storyboard look and functionality for wireless phone application that’s applicable to their class/major, partner with computer science class to create.<br />Video time capsule predicting the how technology will impact learning experience in the future.<br />
    145. 145. Applying the NETS standards<br />Communication and Collaboration<br /><ul><li>Students use digital media and environments to communicate and work collaboratively, including at a distance, to support individual learning and contribute to the learning of others.</li></ul>Group<br />Justin<br />So, what do you think?...<br />Use Google docs wiki to share resources and research on a topic.<br />Students build Facebook group around a certain topic (e.g. Going green) and make connections with students across the country, share tips, ask questions, create call to action (e.g. online petitions).<br />

    148. 148. Applying the NETS standards<br />Digital Citizenship<br />Students understand human, cultural, and societal issues related to technology and practice legal and ethical behavior.<br />Group<br />Justin<br />So, what do you think?...<br />Students monitor the blogosphere – including blogs, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube – and share current events in technology with each other.<br />Research legal blogs on Google blog search, search legal conversations on Twitter, social media policies companies have shared and collaborate on “Student social media and technology policy.”<br />
    149. 149. Applying the NETS standards<br />Technology Operations and Concepts<br /><ul><li> Students demonstrate a sound understanding of technology concepts, systems, and operations.</li></ul>Group<br />Justin<br />So, what do you think?...<br />Students teaching students video contest. Use Flip video cameras to film demos of “getting started” with social network (e.g. Facebook, LinkedIn) functionality.<br />When professors/guest speakers cover application of technology and/or social media in classroom or workplace, encourage students to live tweet or blog as way to share concepts.<br />
