Sheffield Primary Deputy & Assistant Headteachers’ Conference is a two day event, held at Oulton Hall, Oulton, Leeds. It is entitled ‘Leading Learning in the 21st Century’.
One big element we covered, after it got a big push before the event, was how Twitter can form a back channel to a conference, and also become a way to extend a network, during (and after) a “meet-up” like this one. The tag for the conference was: #SheffDepConf10.
As Liz Hancox wrote: “A Twitter Hash Tag is an easy way to search for tweets (posts) that have a similar theme on Twitter. For example, if you type #BBC into the search box you will get a list of tweets related to the BBC Corporation and it’s various activities. The good thing about using a Hash Tag is you won’t get posts that randomly mention BBC for example ‘ So happy got BBC in my A-Levels – Uni here I come :)’ because BBC was not preceded by a hash”.
So, why not type #SheffDepConf10 into a Twitter search box today and see what people had to say on the subject. There were not that many Twitterers here today, but I get the feeling that is going to change. There was also a TodaysMeet set up for the event.
We had the total joy of doing an extended presentation and two workshops throughout the day.
