The range of interactive planning software and social networking media is dizzying. This webinar will show how planners are using social media and web-based participation tools to increase the number and diversity of people engaged in charrettes. Using current case studies, we will also show how high-tech tools can improve the traditional “high-touch” or hands-on charrette by gathering more information and providing more feedback—all in real time.

How can you use Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and blogs to promote meaningful stakeholder involvement?
How to combine high-tech tools with hands-on workshop exercises?
How to use social media safely, avoiding uncivil conversations or dominance by any one group?
How to use the web in concert with social media tools to increase meeting participation?
