At #TLTechLive the following strategies were implemented to capture everything anyone interested may have missed. Check them out and see which ones make sense for your next event. Notice something missing? Please share in the comments.
1) Hashtag: The hashtag is the foundation to stay connected, maintain consistency, and keep the conversation going. Tech & Learning Live used #TLTechLive. This hashtag was on the program, participant name tags, session poster boards, and it was the wifi password. Everything appeared on the social hub at http://www.techlearning.com/tltechlive/.
2) Presenter List On Twitter: Make it easy to follow presenters by making a list of them on Twitter. This list was called #TLTechLive NJ Presenters and is found at https://twitter.com/InnovativeEdu/lists/tltechlive-nj-presenters
3) Post Materials: Never worry about missing a slide or capturing what it said because all materials are shared at http://www.techlearning.com/live/program/princeton/33.
4) Facebook Group: Create a Facebook Group before the conference to generate excitement before the event and give participants a place to keep the conversation going. The Facebook group reinforces the hashtag and is aptly named #TLTechLive and is found at https://www.facebook.com/groups/TLTechLive/
6) Livestream: Livestream your sessions for those who couldn't attend or those who want to go back to be reminded of what they heard. Ask your conference presenters to jump in and help make that happen. You can catch the livestreamed sessions at http://tinyurl.com/tltechlivestreamingNJ16
