Web 2.0 and college admissions: How the read/write web is changing the way kids explore and apply to colleges
College Admissions 2.0:

Welcome to the Internet you never knew, but always hoped for. We will discuss the role of the new generation of web communication tools for counselors on both sides of the desk, including blogs, IM, podcasts, text messaging, screen casts, photo/video sharing, Wikis, and more. How can you use these tools to help students and your institution? We will also discuss implications of sites like MySpace and Facebook in college admissions.
