So, I'll kick off!
My name is Tia Carr Williams and Im an english woman living in Columbus, Ohio (which I put down to bad karma). Ive been here for nearly five years and have been working online for most of that time. In my previous incarnations I have run my own health centre, worked in Personnel and Hospital management, been a mature student in Psychology and Religion and raised two fine young adults on the way.
I parlayed my soft skills training into being an online consultant for Social Media (plenty of us about) as well as moderating and facilitating and coaching new entrepreneurs.
Im very excited about the opportunities that New Media Technologies represent in the field of learning, teaching and training as I think we have an unprecedented situation in accelerating the knowledge of young people if we can capture their imagination and their natural proclivity towards net life.
Tomorrow's Elluminate session will feature Truls Henriksen, the CEO of www.EctoLearning.com who will speak with authority about the needs and challenges of social media for educators and their students. I do hope you will join us.
