Social Media Club Wellington | Back To Basics

The fundamentals (of social media).

It was a pure privilege to speak at the Social Media Club Wellington this week.

As a reflection of where I am, transitioning out of the social media specific career, the talk focussed on the idea of getting back to basics.

Here are the links to the stuff featured:

The Illiteracy Of Play | Pecha Kucha Night Christchurch

Another 20 slides x 20 seconds per slide.

Here’s my PechaKucha Night Christchurch presentation on the illiteracy of play—how we as adults have forgotten to cultivate and use the best learning instrument on the planet…

It draws on experiences from my youth work days right through to developing and delivering social media training for folks like BBC, UNICEF and The Gates Foundation.

Exploring ideas and case studies of how playing is the root of all education and also innovation.

This was a remix of my never-delivered TEDxOverlake talk.

Big thanks to the exact and fabulous PechaKucha Night Christchurch organisers for the opportunity to participate, the other fab speakers and the Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna O Waiwhetu for hosting/sponsoring (plus camerapeeps Tim and Elaena).

So do you think adults have lost the ability to play? Become illiterate to it’s power in our own learning and day-to-day work?

Let loose in the comments… you’re not that reserved on Twitter!

The London Conference on Cyberspace | Encouraging Youth Participation

Was humbled and honoured to be invited to speak to a group of young people who were attending The London Conference on Cyberspace and whom were getting ready to feed back their thoughts to the conference organisers and participants.

Thanks to the NSPCC who invited me, specifically Emily, and everyone behind the scenes who made it happen.

You can follow the event outcomes through their @LDNCyberYouth Twitter stream plus there’s the main @LondonCyber conference one as well.

What would you have told them?
