Thanks to Helen Blunden, from Activate Learning Solutions, who shared some of her notes from conVerge12 on her blog.
She gives a great summary of a presentation called ‘To Infinity and Beyond‘ by Michelle Lomman and Ian Rorke from Chisholm Institute.
It was great to find – via Jo Norbury – this new tool called Tweet Archivist for archiving and analysing tweets.
Tweet archive for conVerge12
If you click on the image above and go to the site, you can click on each analysis for specific data, or download the tweets as a excel spreadsheet. It also provides useful analysis on who was tweeting and from what devices. There are also a bunch of photos that we hadn’t seen either.
Last year we used tweetdoc to collate the tweets in a PDF. We decided to use it again this year, as the tweets are a little easier on the eye in this format than in a spreadsheet.
eWorks’ booth at VELG 2011
Joanne Norbury and I are looking forward to the upcoming National VET E-learning Conference (VELG), 21-22 September. The conference has attracted nearly 600 attendees last year which must have been a vocational conference record.
We will be hosting a booth to have conversations about the TrainingVC and our other products. We are also giving away an hour of free training on ‘Getting started in e-learning’ and ‘Adding Web 2.0 to your e-learning’.
I will be presenting ‘From Trainer Development to Client Engagement: Twitter for Educators and Case Studies from RTOs using Facebook.‘ on the Thursday afternoon. This session looks at what you need to get started and running with Twitter, understanding its contexts and grammar, how to leverage this to enhance your Personal Learning Network and what the social network’s role is in terms of training and education. The presentation will also address some of the issues with introducing Facebook into your organisation.
The hashtag for the conference is #2012nvc.
Take the time to come and say hi to us! We’ll be in booth no39.
