THE TWEETING MEETING IS A CROWDSOURCED BOOK ON SOCIAL
MEDIA & SOCIAL NETWORKS FOR MEETINGS & EVENTS.
PUBLISHED IN DECEMBER 2011 BY THE MEETING SUPPORT INSTITUTE.
Maarten Vanneste, president of MSI
SOME OF THE TOPICS THIS BOOK WILL COVER ARE:
• Research and advice on the use of Twitter during events
A simple change -- switching on captions -- can make a big difference when students watch educational videos, an SF State professor has discovered.
Robert Keith Collins, an assistant professor of American Indian studies, found that students' test scores and comprehension improved dramatically when captions were used while watching videos. The tool is often utilized for students with learning disabilities, but Collins says his results show captions can be beneficial to all students.
It’s a technological world
The role of technology in the meetings business has evolved hugely in the past ten years and shows no sign of let up. Where once the Telex was cutting edge, organisers must now manage in an age of hybrid events, multi-screening and streamed live content. Technology is making today’s events more engaging than ever.
A low cost system developed by Nanyang Technological University (NTU), based on the principles of vibration and imaging that is able to track the movements of multiple fingers and of objects, can do just that.
Retrofitting the system onto existing flat-panel TVs will transform it into new, touch sensitive display screens, at only a fraction of the cost of new touch-sensitive display screens, which can cost tens of thousands of dollars.
Websites designed for mobile devices are popular ways to share information with attendees. However, understanding the differences between, native, web-based and hybrid mobile apps are essential in choosing the right technology for your event or conference.
A web app is an application accessed through a devices browser and is limited by the functionality of the mobile browser. In contrast, a native app is downloaded onto the device, loading all pages/documents when the app is installed thus eliminating the need for a network to view content.
