  5. 5. World Wide WUSC Connecting and Conversing in an ICT-Driven World Education Changes the World Note Addition: These two graphics show the idea of a “Ladder of Engagement”. In other words, the way you can move someone from being just and “interested bystander” to someone who is a regular donor or champion of your cause. The more engaged the closer they are to the top of the ladder or the center of the curling circle.

  18. 18. World Wide WUSC Connecting and Conversing in an ICT-Driven World <ul><li>THE HIGHEST IMPACT INITIATIVES INTEGRATE BOTH ONLINE AND OFFLINE STRATEGIES Savvy campaigns recognize the value of marrying both online and offline strategies. Technology and new media allow us to tap into the ‘new’ grassroots (community development 2.0) while traditional offline tactics mobilize supporters on the ground. </li></ul>Education Changes the World
  19. 19. World Wide WUSC Connecting and Conversing in an ICT-Driven World <ul><li>THREE KEYS TO INTEGRATING ON- AND OFFLINE STRATEGIES 1) Let the master plan drive decision-making about tactics, and not vice versa. 2) Ensure each strategy consistently references the other. 3) Generate waves of momentum. </li></ul>Education Changes the World
  20. 20. World Wide WUSC Connecting and Conversing in an ICT-Driven World <ul><li>WHY WAS THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN SO EFFECTIVE? </li></ul>Education Changes the World
  21. 21. World Wide WUSC Connecting and Conversing in an ICT-Driven World <ul><li>WHY WAS THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN SO EFFECTIVE? BECAUSE IT EMPLOYED THESE THREE KEYS. Every last detail of every sub-strategy – from facebook updates to infamous kitchen table meetings – was designed to serve the ultimate goal: elect Obama. </li></ul>Education Changes the World
  22. 22. World Wide WUSC Connecting and Conversing in an ICT-Driven World <ul><li>WHY WAS THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN SO EFFECTIVE? BECAUSE IT EMPLOYED THESE THREE KEYS. Internet, email, social networking not used as ends in themselves, but as an effective means. </li></ul>Education Changes the World
  23. 23. World Wide WUSC Connecting and Conversing in an ICT-Driven World <ul><li>WHY WAS THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN SO EFFECTIVE? BECAUSE IT EMPLOYED THESE THREE KEYS. Consistent branding and messaging across all levels of the campaign made Obama foot soldiers feel a part of the internet campaign and online activists feel a vital part of live events. </li></ul>Education Changes the World
  24. 24. World Wide WUSC Connecting and Conversing in an ICT-Driven World <ul><li>WHY WAS THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN SO EFFECTIVE? BECAUSE IT EMPLOYED THESE THREE KEYS. Used tech and new media to make issues personal and relevant to people and giving them ownership of the campaign – then used offline opportunities to develop and strengthen those relationships. Each success on each level was conveyed to and celebrated at all levels: when an online fundraising target was smashed, door canvassers sold the victory; when a primary or poll put Obama on top, internet campaigners ran with it. </li></ul>Education Changes the World Note Addition: You can imagine many of the WUSC Local Committee campaigns using this same offline – online engagement strategy. We are already very good at doing offline events. Now it is time to harness some tools online at the same time!
