Directions and bus instructions
Students should be dropped off in front of the Orr Center (see map). Busses should pull as far forward as possible to allow room for METS buses. After students are unloaded, buses can be parked in Lots K or L.
Students will walk along the temporary sidewalk in front of the construction site and enter the Performance Center (see map).
Once inside the Performance Center:
Have you ever said something on social media that you would never say in person? What is it about online communication that causes this? This talk will explore the research behind why so many people turn to the dark side on social media and what responsibility we have to bring it into the light.
Stephanie Madden, assistant professor of journalism and strategic media at the University of Memphis, will present our keynote address "The Dark Side of Social Media."
Sign up sheets for the breakout sessions will be available at the registration table. Teachers/advisers are asked to help direct students to sessions most appropriate for their interests. We ask that sessions that have limited seats not be filled with students from the same school.
