Aug 2012 NACADA Tech Talk #1: Trends


Published on

"I want to talk today about two big themes that will be repeated frequently this week – the ways that colleagues are using technology, both enterprise-wide technology and social media, to enhance & maximize learning. And I’m going to touch on the ways institutions are using technology to maximize their work. We see both of these trends every day on the web, in newspapers, at conferences, and on our campuses."
