At this morning’s keynote at the Ed-Media conference in Vienna a live stream of conference tweets were displayed alongside the presenter’s own presentation. The point being… uhm, not sure. Because we can? To make the session more social and interactive I guess but I think I’d just find it a distraction as both a presenter and a delegate. Perhaps I’m missing something?
Basically if you use twitter and post a message (a ‘tweet’) that includes #edmedia08 in it, then it will appear in the aggregated view. I like the way it works and I am finding it useful to keep an eye on what’s going on at the conference but remain unconvinced by the use of it in a live session. Perhaps I need to be there. Next year.
