For 2012, the new NMC Horizon Connect Session series of webinars will feature thought leaders, game changers, and innovators who are making a difference right now in the world of educational technology. Focused on the technologies, trends, and challenges from this year's NMC Horizon Report series, these sessions offer a deep-dive into those topics and a range of different perspectives.

Digital media has impacted our lives in staggering ways, and few people have chronicled that impact more thoughtfully than Howard Rheingold. In this Horizon Connect webinar, Howard will discuss his new book Net Smart: How to Thrive Online, and answer your questions live. This is a great opportunity to learn how to more strategically think about and apply digital media in your own work.

About Net Smart
"How can we use digital media so that they help us become empowered participants rather than passive consumers? In Net Smart, I show how to use social media intelligently, humanely, and, above all, mindfully.

Mindful use of digital media means thinking about what we are doing, cultivating an ongoing inner inquiry into how we want to spend our time. I outline five fundamental digital literacies, online skills that will help us do this: attention, participation, collaboration, critical consumption of information (or "crap detection"), and network smarts."
