Program Management System - 21st BCCE - Using Social Networking for Chemical Education

Workshop Title: Using Social Networking for Chemical Education
Descrption: Dramatic changes in scholarly communication are underway, and this workshop is designed to help chemical educators make use of these new capabilities. Recent initiatives by the American Chemical Society and many other scientific publishers to expand the capabilities of online journals will certainly accelerate these changes. Students and faculty are already using programs like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to maintain professional and social contacts. A few also use social tagging programs, like Delicious or Connotea, to manage information. Not many teachers have set up aggregators to access to these feeds even though publishers provide RSS feeds for their journals, and few professors seem to be using these programs to their maximum potential. The next big thing in search appears to be real-time search of social networking sites. This workshop would teach about using programs, like Delicious, RSS aggregators, Wikis, Twitter, and Faceebook, for classroom applications and professional information management. Workshop attendees will recive a short handbook describing the resources discussed in the class and this workshop is sponsored by the DivCHED CCCE.
