SMCEDU - GW Chapter

Page history last edited by Cathryn Sitterding 12 years, 5 months ago

The #SMCEDU project seeks to ensure that graduates from every college/university are media literate and are able to competently understand and apply the emerging lessons from social media in organizations. It has always been the goal of Social Media Club to create what I think of as a "path to professionalism" for citizen journalists, story tellers, video producers, communications professionals and engineers.


We will support existing social media education efforts such as PR Open Mic, Classroom 2.0, Social Media Classroom and others while also seeking to coordinate efforts with school administrators and local professionals.  Key to our success will be connecting the local Social Media Club groupsmore closely with their local universities to co-create a combination of mentoring programs, internships, professional development opportunities and a repository of Creative Commons licensed Social Media curriculum. As such, we are seeking local Social Media Club chapters with existing professors and ties to local schools to join our efforts to create some pilot programs.


We'll collaborate with Georgetown University as they begin to build their own SMCEDU project. Our POC is Renee Goldman. Nicole Morales and Renee recently spoke about steps we'll take:

  • Once Georgetown creates their SMCEDU charter, Renee will post it here on our wiki -- and hopefully we can use it as a model.
  • Until the groups are stood up, students can be recruited to participate in the SMC-DC.
  • We'll work together on developing a panel of experts to "debate" the value of social media... some believers and some non-believers... as the first SMCEDU-GWU event.
