Unprecedented and breathtaking developments in human communication underscore how Allen School continues to utilize cutting edge methods to benefit its community…
In a remarkable historical event, thousands of brave young people in Iran risked their lives by taking to the streets in a dramatic political uprising. They protested the results of a recent presidential election. In the face of massive arrests by the police and threats of execution from government officials, public protest continued as the government worked on shielding the outside world’s view of the unrest by arresting journalists, and banning coverage of the demonstrations. Social media like Facebook, Twitter, blogs, and citizen journalism replaced traditional news outlets for the spreading of information. Old media, falling victim to censorship by the government, was not able to keep up with reporting the news.
The new model for communication has become social networking. Social media has opened a direct line of accessible information that enables people to communicate with each other. The Allen School, after introducing four years ago its online portal to showcase high level candidates to the medical HR community, the Speed Staffing System™ is now making use of social networking to knit its own community more tightly together and to reach out to the community at large.
Students and alumni of both school entities and the community at large are invited to become fans on Facebook to meet each other and to find out about goings on and events. They are also invited to read the ongoing and lively discussions on the new blog and are welcome to post their opinions and comments.
