Would you like to tweet at a conference? It's the perfect way to keep updated on all the latest information and buzz.
Check out the video above as SimpleK12 technology trainer Monica Burns shares how to keep up with all of the conference buzz using Twitter. This is the perfect way to stay updated on everything going on at the conference, and share your favorite tips.
Monica quickly explains how to:
- discover a conference hashtag
- include a hashtag in your tweet
- find other tweets with a conference hashtag
My favorite thing about conference hashtags is you don't need to use Twitter OR be at the conference to benefit from them. Anyone can search for a specific hashtag on Twitter and discover resources, ideas, and tips shared on that particular thread. It's a great way to find some new ideas for your classroom.
If you'd like to get a better handle on managing social media from an educator's perspective, you must take a look at Top Tools for Taming the Onslaught of Social Media Info. This training session explores several tools that help you learn from others more efficiently and organize resources shared through social media. Join Dr. Jayme Linton as she explores how you can make the best use of Twitter, Tweetdeck, Pocket, and If This Then That to learn and stay organized.
