This past weekend, I attended the American University Social Media Club Social Learning Summit 2013. This was an amazing conference for a one-day summit. I felt a greater level of engagement and took part in more in depth conversations at this event than I have at most industry conferences. Kudos to the organizers, panelist and attendees!

Here are some of the best insights and funniests tweets shared during the event:

Greatest takeaway from #slskey is we become more out of touch the older we get. Use social media like a teenager. #sls13
