Virtual Exchanges: Using New Technology to Enhance People-to-People Exchanges

Saturday, August 2 (1:30 pm – 2:30 pm)

The latest technology has been able to keep us in touch with family, friends, and colleagues, but why not use this technology to create virtual exchanges when physical exchanges are prohibited by money or capacity. Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Skype are useful tools to help implement a new, yet successful exchange program. Discuss the benefits of using technology to further strengthen your international partnership.
