Title: Innovating in the Social Economy: How social tools are transforming business & education.
Less than 10 years ago, Facebook was just an idea in the mind of a Harvard freshman. Now Facebook and other social tools network 1.2 billion people, spawning new businesses and new ways of doing business as the world transitions into the Social Economy. Social tools are also transforming education at all levels, leading to social learning, "flipped classrooms" and a new emphasis on community and peer collaboration.
This lecture will provide a broad overview of emerging social trends, what they mean to business and education today, and how you can take advantage of these innovations.
