Getting Started with the Games
So here we are on the 15th floor in downtown Vancouver. It is our first meeting with the Student Live Reports. There have been 24 amazing students chosen from across the lower-mainland. This morning we have been getting started with all the social media tools, connecting to facebook, twitter, blogs, emails and whatever other media tools we can use. There are endless possibilities out there on the web today. Our goal this morning has been to get 200 of our facebook friends following the 'Students Live' group. We are starting by just social networking and getting people interested. We had a workshop on blogging and interviewing with a VANOC representative. He sure knew his stuff! I can't wait to get started with this amazing program, and all the opportunities that come along with it!
