#SnapCon21 took place last week online and the @SnapCloud organising team upped the online conference game in terms of making it easy to navigate - I jotted down some of notable features

a daily email arrived on with reminders and links directly to each conference space The header of an email from the Snap Conference reminding at

in small print for every single session there was a link to a pop out ‘your timezone’ - a lifesaver as we were convening from china around to California [which meant at meal breaks we were heading off for breakfast to supper and everything in between] a screen notice which reads “In Your Timezone” and gives
@SnapCloud jot4
a relaxation space called “The Hallway” [using the platform OhYeh] was open all the time - loads of spaces from ‘hotel bar’ to ‘lakeside campfire’ - reminded me of The Cantina at #cesicon and #ictedu image shows a virtual “room” space simulating a fire pit

a dynamic keynote format which used pre-recorded video made by the speaker, who then was in the audience with us, answering questions for us in the chat - very imaginative, very compelling, very good idea

one of three more ‘unconference’ spaces: there was a zero hour invitation to attendees to Share Your Project via an upload facility, for a live ‘show and tell’ session on the final day

another unconference ‘unexpected delight’ - a visit to the Cyber University (imagine a programmable Gathertown!) which custom built for après-conference screenshot of a Snap! project showing blocks of code, the st

the unconference part of Snap!Con offers spaces for Birds Of A Feather [already shortened to “BoF” which has a ring to it] so that groups can put out a call to get together by interest or practice … no agenda until you get to the space - Turtlestitch BoF pictured here: screenshot of a zoom meeting with 18, male and female adults
@SnapCloud jot9
the best shortcut of all for navigating the ether was the button on each event in the schedule to go directly to join in A screen button, rounded rectangle shape in landscape orient
@SnapCloud Many thanks to the organising committee of #SnapCon21 - as well as all of the above, the content was terrific. But all of the above made it easier to spend four days in screen mode without getting too fatigued </>🧵

Good threads of conversation on here recently, prompted by reactions to a conference hosted at St Columba’s College by the generous @humpreyjones and @sccEnglish and attended by over 300 teachers. Focussed by title on research in education, with a vibrant program ... 01/16
@sccenglish … have jogged some thoughts here. I wasn’t there, but the program looked great, some fabulous presentations listed that I’d love to have attended. My disquiet is about the way this franchise suggests it is somehow all shiny and new.
