Finding others in Extension using social media and digital communication tools:
  • My Twitter forestry list. (Perhaps not that useful for many at this session.)
  • The eXtension technology community is a great way to connect with other Extension folks using digital communication in their work. (You may need to create an eXtension account, and should be prompted to do that.) Look for the "Find colleagues," then "By social network", or try this direct link once you're logged in.
  • The eXtension Learn series offers excellent 30-minute (and some longer) online instruction on a variety of digital communication topics.
