SMBNH & SMBME Join For Education
NOTE: THE EVENT IS ON August 20, 2010.
Ticket sales end on 8/19 in the evening. Do not confuse the Eventbrite ticket end date with the event date!
In NH we’ve had two Education themed SMBNH mornings (here and here), where you have heard from folks breaking new ground in education from all over the state. Now we’re bringing some of the bright minds from Maine down to collaborate and share what our neighbor is doing for social and education.
We hope to foster a greater feeling of community between the education communities in both states, and we hope you enjoy our three speakers from our sister state of Maine and meeting our attendees from both NH and Maine this month.

Theme for the 14th Social Media Breakfast: Social Media for Educators
The 14th Social Media Breakfast NH is also the first SMBNH and SMBME collaboration.
This one will be all about topics related to educators using Social Media and as our third foray into education here in NH, will feature speakers from our neighbor: Maine.
In addition to Leslie Poston (myself), who will be your host and MC for the morning, you will have three speakers giving three brief presentations on topics relating to the theme for the morning.

Closing Remarks and announcements by Leslie Poston
This is going to be a great breakfast!
There is a huge lot at the Marriott. I believe they validate parking, but have not confirmed this yet for you.
The Marriott is at the corners of Deer St, Maplewood Ave and Hanover St in Portsmouth. The address in the sidebar will get you to the parking entrance but is not their official address.
Look for the blue awning to the side of the main entrance – that’s where we’ll be!
