Slideshare is a great way to present, tell your story, create information. Here is the 'how-to'! Great stuff.

Jeremy Pollard's curator insight, June 22, 5:48 PM

We all gained a great communications channel when LinkedIn bought Slideshare. Once you get past update posting on LinkedIn, and posting other peoples' pictures of other peoples' quotes - posting your own actual content is a great goal (and one of my New Year resolutions)

 

This is a good, practical article on how to re-purpose current content into a usable format for promotion via SlideShare

Sesame Street To Focus On Autism | Disability Scoop

Sesame Street To Focus On Autism | Disability Scoop | digital divide information | Scoop.it

The nonprofit behind Big Bird, Elmo and Abby Cadabby is launching a new effort to reduce stigma surrounding kids with autism and help those with the developmental disorder learn life skills.

 

Through a new initiative dubbed “See Amazing in All Children,” Sesame Workshop said it will create digital tools to help children with autism learn to play with others and complete everyday activities like brushing teeth, getting dressed and trying new foods.

 

In addition, the organization said it will use Sesame Street’s brand and characters to educate the public about autism and emphasize that kids on the spectrum are much like their typically developing peers.
