My best takeaways from B.T.C. just for Y.O.U.

LogoHey everyone!

Hope you enjoyed your 4th of July & long weekend!

A few weeks ago, Tom asked me about the Boyne Tech Conference that I help to put on.

The first thing he asked for were tips for hosting a conference (see that post here), but he also asked about any great takeaways from the conference.

What I may have failed to mention to him was that when you run a conference, sitting in a session can be tricky. I think I sat in two for all of about 10 minutes.

Enter Twitter Hashtag = #boynetech. This is where the hashtag becomes even better for me. I can still scroll through posts labeled with this hashtag and find all the tweets from that day.

As I was doing that this morning, I found a tweet about Mindy Lynch.

MindyMindy is a teacher turned administrator. She’s presented at BTC for two years and at MACUL for three. She knows technology.

She’s also fun and enjoys a good laugh as I learned when I had time to connect with her and other great educators before lunch.

But you know what her session was about? Showcasing Your School in the Digital AgeHow perfect, right???

In her presentation (which you can find here – by simply clicking and downloading) Mindy chatted all about the different ways to promote the great things going on in your school. She chats about ways to use social media, fun apps to help, and (what are the chances??) creating a hashtag for your school!

You’ll see many examples and tools when you click through her presentation.

You really, REALLY need to check out Mindy’s presentation, but you also might want to follow her on Twitter or keep up on her blog. (How does she do it all???)

Mindy’s got a social media presence for schools all dialed up for you.

Just tune in!
