In April 2013, I had the opportunity to attend the #EdSocialMedia Summit 2013 at the Walnut Hill School for the Arts in Natick, MA, just outside of Boston.  In this episode, I will share highlights and takeways from the various speakers who offered practical tips on social media for K12 and HigherEd environments.

I linked to most of the speakers in the shownotes, along with some videos to watch.
