                • Getting Connected: Harnessing the Power of Social Media to Enhance Community College Students’ Success

                  CECILIA RIOS-AGUILAR Claremont Graduate University, REGINA DEIL-AMEN, The University of Arizona, and GREG RATLIFF, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Today’s college students have embraced social media/social networking sites. As such, social media has become a major part of their lives. These technologies are reshaping the way students communicate generally and within their college community. Despite the widespread use of social media, little is known about the benefits of its use in diverse contexts (e.g., community colleges) and for specific purposes (e.g., social, academic, and professional engagement of students). This paper examines if and how commuter-based community colleges attempt to use social media as a mechanism to increase students’ connection to college. Using data from a social media platform–the Schools App–implemented in 9 community colleges across the U.S., we examine students’ social networks and the content of the interactions in the virtual community. Findings reveal relatively low-dense social networks. Furthermore, findings show that the major use of the app seems to be to gain organizational and college-going procedural help and information – navigating the community college institution and their college pursuit more broadly. http://europe.immersiveeducation.org/events/ied-europe-summit-2012/

Introducing T-TEN Toyota Technical Education Network, a rewarding way to jumpstart your future and launch your career. Of course, you could always do this for a living. After I got out of high school, I didn't know what I was going to do. When I heard about T-TEN that's when I realized what a wonderful program T-TEN is. T-TEN has helped me succeed in automotive industry. It gave me a career that I enjoyed. On top of that, I even got the opportunity to train the future technicians. I strongly believe in the T-TEN program. Yes. All right. All right. Turn it off. OK. That should do it. That's it? Yeah. That's what you wanted. That was quick. You're a magician. It was nothing. Just hook me up when you get your own garage, all right? Yeah, whatever. No, I'm serious, man. You should do this for real. Yeah. OK. Come on. Look, my brother, he took this program with Toyota. It taught him how to fix cars, work on engines, stuff like that. Yeah? What's he do now? Works for the Toyota Racing Team. That's sweet. Yeah. Come on. I know this instructor down at the JC. He'll help you out. We'll take a drive down there. No. Dude, I'll drive. No, because-- King Tonka, I'm buying. OK. Let's go. Whether you're a high school student considering your options, or a college graduate looking for your first job, Toyota can help create a path to your future. Toyota is partnering with high schools, colleges, communities, and private institutions in your area to provide you with the education and training you need to meet today's technically advanced work environments. At T-TEN, you get the hands on experience and specialized technical training to prepare you for an exciting career at a Toyota or Lexus dealership. OK, guys. Good work today. Thank you. I will see you all tomorrow. Tell me a little more about this program, because I heard you could get GE credit towards a bachelor's degree. Is that true? Yeah. That's what's so great about this program. Not only are you learning a ton of helpful stuff, but you're doing what you love to do and you're earning credits towards your college degree. But why not be a technician at any auto shop? Why should I go through T-TEN? If you looked into it, you'd find that technicians who work at new and used car dealers earn more money than technicians who work at local, independent auto shops. And where else are you going to learn the specialized skills you need for today's advanced vehicles? Toyota and Lexus have an outstanding reputation for quality. And I'm telling you, T-TEN is no different. Plus, they offer factory certification, internship opportunities which will give you experience. And that's exactly what service managers are looking for when they hire new people. If you like working on cars, you like working with your hands, you like making money, T-TEN's the answer. That sounds so sweet. Here's a brochure. It's got the website and an 800 number on it. Or if you have any questions, you can always email or call me. Thank you so much. You're welcome. I appreciate it. Thanks for doing this, Mr. Davis, take it easy. The bottom line, if you're looking for an opportunity to learn the skills you'll need to jumpstart your career, then T-TEN is right for you.
