Workshop: Social Media - Experiences from a Jamboree
Last Sunday @frick, @linarudin and I delivered a workshop at #scoutforum on how we worked with social media at the 22nd World Scout Jamboree 2011. More people than we expected showed up and overall it seemed to be an appreciated workshop.
We had three objectives with the workshop: (1) demonstrate how easy it is to engage more people using social media, (2) show that social media is more than Facebook, and (3) share inspiration and tips with each other.
In the end we hope that more Scouts will use and benefit from the “social” communication channels. Let’s not forget, however, that social media is not a substitute for a traditional website. It’s a symbiosis.@thomasfrostberg suggested that we record some short videos based on the Jamboree social media experiences for more Scouts to see. Let’s see.
