I’ve seen plenty of presentations that try to incorporate social media, polling, and other interactive tools. It’s all an effort to engage the audience and keep the conversation going. But usually these presentations don’t do it right. They say ‘mention my presentation with the XYZ hashtag’ or ‘like us on Facebook to see back-channel conversations’ and whatnot. But all of that is passive participation.
Lucky for you, we just stumbled across a new tool that’s designed to incorporate live tweets into your presentation. What could be better than that? While these tweets may not all be perfect and some may not be professional / appropriate, it’s a great tool to know about.
It’s called SAP Web 2.0 it’s as simple to use as PowerPoint. In fact, you just add in a slide that is supplied to you and that’s it. Quite simple. Click here to check out the instructions page on how to use SAP Web 2.0.
Using It In The Classroom
SAP Web 2.0 could be a great way to encourage students to start / keep using Twitter. It could also be a fun way to include distance learners who aren’t in the physical classroom. Taking an online class? Watching remotely? Participate via Twitter right in the presentation slide!
