My posting last Thursday explained how I was in Athlone, Ireland to deliver a keynote to the Irish Learning Technology Association's EdTech10 conference. As my presentation was to be about social learning, I didn't want to present in the traditional way, but to try and make the experience as social and collaborative as possible, so I blogged and tweeted about the event and invited others to participate. All in all it worked out very well, and afterwards, Juanita @JFJ24 tweeted: "will you be blogging your reflections on the experience. Think it woud be interesting" I tweeted back that I would - just like I had blogged my experience using Twitter in a face-to-face workshop - so here is how I planned, prepared for and delivered the collaborative keynote.

UPDATE 7 July 2011: Google Realtime is no longer with us. Initially it seemed to be temporarily offline while under-bonnet tinkering happened and it was assumed it would be hooked up with Google+ however it now seems that Google is no longer accessing Twitter's stream as the deal ended on 2 July 2011. This isn't great. Following conference hashtag tweets in real time and saving them for later
#Hashtags and other New Media Tools at the Forum on Education Abroad Conference This week the Forum on Education Abroad annual conference will take place in Charlotte, North Carolina and I'm sad to say that I am no longer able to attend. I have attended every Forum on Education Abroad conference and I was scheduled to present but due to a required meeting about my dissertation proposal that overlaps the conference I had to withdraw from my session. Now that I have a phone that is smarter than me I was planning on a heavy social media presence at the Forum conference that included posts to Twitter and IHEC Blog's Facebook page as well as video uploads (perhaps interviews) for IHEC Blog's YouTube channel. Additionally, I planned to blog frequently from the conference. I guess this will all happen at the upcoming NAFSA conference (more on this as the NAFSA conference approaches).
An Open Letter … « NASPA Annual Conference An Open Letter from the People with Cell Phones out (for a purpose) during sessions Dear Presenter/Speaker at NASPA 2010, I am listening and I think your session is great! Just because I am on my cell phone does not mean that I am sending a text to someone else. I am definitely not bored; I am fully engaged as I am actually listening to you very closely so I can take notes, quote you, and I’m trying to take a picture of you.
Did you know that your tweets have an expiration date on them? While they never really disappear from your own Twitter stream, they become unsearchable in only a matter of days. At first, Twitter held onto your tweets for around a month, but as the service grew more popular, this "date limit" has dramatically shortened. According to Twitter's search documentation, the current date limit on the search index is "around 1.5 weeks but is dynamic and subject to shrink as the number of tweets per day continues to grow." What that means is something tweeted prior to a week and a half ago can never be retrieved via search.twitter.com. That's bad for users and it's definitely bad for data-mining.
