Social Media – #BIT16 and #NotAtBIT16

We realize that not everyone can attend #BIT16.  Some of you might want to come for all 3 days, but that is not possible either.  

Those of you who are at #BIT16 realize that you can’t do / see everything.

We’ve got you covered with Bring IT, Together social media.

Step 1: Connect with Bring IT, Together

Pick your preferred social media streams and make sure you add / follow / like us:

Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/bit4ontedu/

Twitter:  @BringIT2016

Instagram:  bring_it_together

Step 2:  Monitor social media

During the conference, we will use the hashtags #BIT16 and #NotAtBIT16 for all our social media posts.  You are all tech savvy – use your favorite app / software to monitor the social media streams.

Step 3:  Share / Learn

Post to social media, using #BIT16 and #NotATBIT16, to share your experiences.  Interact and learn from the information posted.

What Bring IT, Together will share during the conference:

Timely Twitter posts:  We will keep you informed about changes / updates / upcoming events.  These posts will use only #BIT16 hashtag as those who cannot attend will just be upset to see what they are missing!

Facebook Live Stream:  On Wednesday we will experiment with using Facebook Live Streaming to show you what’s happening.  Thursday and Friday we will live stream one session from each time slot.   A BIT Volunteer will stream the session that he/she is attending.   Keep in mind that this is the first time we’ve tried this.  BIT followers, of all people, should understand that something will likely go wrong and we will deal with it (no pun intended).

Thursday Keynote Live Stream:  Thursday at 8:30 am we will Live Stream Shelly Sanchez Terrell’s keynote.  Details will be posted to Twitter and Facebook.

Wandering Instagram:  Volunteers will be wandering the venue and be taking pictures that will be posted to Instagram and Twitter.  Who will you recognize?
