SLEDcc Social Media

To facilitate the sharing of resources, findings, and results of SLEDcc with the broadest possible audience on the web, a number of social media technologies will be integrated into the SLEDcc program.

Linking to the SLEDcc Webpage

Place a graphic on your own website or blog to link back to this website. The graphic will look like this:


The embed code you need is:
<a href="" onmousedown="this.href+='t/b/80x15'; this.onmousedown=''; return true;">
<img src="" width="100" height="100" alt="SLEDcc08" border="0"/>

Discussions, Community Building, & Resource Sharing

We have partnered with GlobalKids and the RezEd community to provide a web-based space for discussion and resource sharing as we approach the conference, and we encourage you to join our group there at /sledcc2008.


SLEDcc will have a live twitter stream! We will also likely tweet updates and useful information about the conference planning in the months leading up to the conference. Follow us at and we'll follow back! (Seeing who follows the SLEDcc Twitter account is a great way to add to your own Twitter network, too!)

What is Twitter? It's kind of hard to describe, but you can think of it as a cross between micro-blogging, group instant messaging, and SMS alert system if you choose to set it up that way. Read the full Wikipedia entry for Twitter for more information.
