worldteacher 12:03 PM RT @yitzha_sarwono: @Shaunwilden tip no 1: smile! And say 'hi' to people you've smiled at :-) #ELTchat >That's a good 1st step to networking
teflerinha 12:03 PM RT @yitzha_sarwono: @Shaunwilden tips no 1: smile! And say 'hi' to people you've smiled at :-) #ELTchat No. 2 Wear your name badge
OUPELTGlobal 12:04 PM RT @Shaunwilden: @teflerinha Yeah though names badges need to have social media handles on them as well :-) #eltchat
yearinthelifeof 12:04 PM @esolcourses @Shaunwilden I have one or two ideas ;-) #eltchat
antoniaclare 12:04 PM Tip #3 make sure your twitter/facebook profile pic looks like you real life, so people can recognise you #eltchat
theteacherjames 12:04 PM I love a conference. Went to #tedxbrussels on Monday & will be in Paris this weekend for @TESOLFrance. Good times!  #eltchat
worldteacher 12:04 PM RT @Shaunwilden: @teflerinha Yeah though names badges need to have social media handles on them as well :-) #ELTchat. >True!
teflerinha 12:04 PM @Shaunwilden Yes, good point! #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 12:05 PM @esolcourses @Shaunwilden make your personalize schedules on the talk that you need to attend #donethatmyself #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 12:05 PM @teacherphili 140 dollars is a bit pricey isnt ! #ELTchat.
theteacherjames 12:05 PM @Shaunwilden You should, it's one of the best. #ELTchat
FrancesEales 12:05 PM @yitzha_sarwono @Shaunwilden #eltchat Agree. It's such an opportunity to network with people. Great conversations in between talks.
elawassell 12:05 PM RT @antoniaclare: Tip #3 make sure your twitter/facebook profile pic looks like you real life, so people can recognise you #ELTchat
jankenb2 12:05 PM #eltchat Hello from Vilnius. The next hour I will engage in lively conversation w/like minded Ts/eds on making the most of prof. conferences
Shaunwilden 12:05 PM @theteacherjames One day I hope to make it TESOL france, always something gets in the way #ELTchat.
teacherphili 12:05 PM Was going to go to a conference this weekend in Ho Chi Minh but they wanted 140 dollars - didn't think I would get enough out of it #ELTchat
antoniaclare 12:05 PM @theteacherjames Lucky you.  Wish I was going to #tesolfr again #tedxbrussels #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 12:06 PM Good one RT @antoniaclare: Tip #3 make sure your twitter/facebook profile pic looks like you real life, so people can recognise you #eltchat
antoniaclare 12:06 PM @FrancesEales Good point.  Try to be sure to chat to people you meet over coffee, at bookstalls, in the pub etc. ;) #eltchat
elawassell 12:06 PM Can we add to the ideas from the previous chat? http://t.co/YrH9pppc #ELTchat
theteacherjames 12:06 PM @Shaunwilden @teflerinha Absolutely, nobody knows who James Taylor but a few people have heard of his alter ego ;-) #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 12:06 PM @billpellowe Is there any point to business cards in the social media age? #ELTchat.
teacherphili 12:06 PM @Shaunwilden I think it included a tour of the War Remnants Museum, but that can be done in own time - only 15000 dong! #ELTchat
teflerinha 12:06 PM #eltchat Think it can be hard to assess which talks will be most useful
esolcourses 12:06 PM A tip from me:  don't try to pack too many sessions in at F2F confs - work some downtime in so your brain doesn't get fried #eltchat
billpellowe 12:06 PM #eltchat Conference tip: Bring business cards and a card holder. Write to the people you've met. Build your PLN.
Shaunwilden 12:06 PM @theteacherjames So I am told, always seem to be doing a talk somewhere on the same day!  Next year....#ELTchat.
worldteacher 12:07 PM @Shaunwilden @billpellowe Business cards still imp here in SE Asia - you're expected to carry them. #eltchat
elawassell 12:07 PM @Shaunwilden yes - just to get the spelling right ;-)
esolcourses 12:07 PM RT @antoniaclare: Tip #3 make sure your twitter/facebook profile pic looks like you real life, so people can recognise you #eltchat
antoniaclare 12:07 PM RT @Shaunwilden: @billpellowe Is there any point to business cards in the social media age? #ELTchat. > I never know what to do with them

Shaunwilden 12:08 PM @worldteacher So I should get some for my trip to Vietnam next week then? #ELTchat.

worldteacher 12:09 PM @Shaunwilden @teacherphili Definitely, Shaun - you're a no-one without them!! :-) #eltchat (And Phil, mine are my own, not EIU's!)
yitzha_sarwono 12:09 PM @worldteacher @Shaunwilden @billpellowe yes, we trade them at all time :-) #eltchat
antoniaclare 12:09 PM RT @cybraryman1: Tweet to the conference hashtag #eltchat so you can get together with others attending at a TweetUp or have lunch, dinner..
theteacherjames 12:09 PM @David__Boughton I can't recommend the experience highly enough. I get so much out of it, professionally & personally. #eltchat
esolcourses 12:09 PM RT @cybraryman1: @Shaunwilden Put your blog or site on a QR code on your business card #eltchat

yearinthelifeof 12:10 PM Simpson in reflective mood: A tale of two conferences (part one) http://t.co/XwtHPdmu via @yearinthelifeof #ELTchat
stephenburrows 12:10 PM #eltchat, what's the deal on walking out of talks/workshops after 10 minutes etc - do you do it?
OUPELTGlobal 12:10 PM I like to have a few personal objectives before the conference. It helps me choose the talks more easily.  #eltchat
esolcourses 12:10 PM RT @jankenb2: #eltchat I get the most from a conf, online or F2F, when I've done my homework, selected issues & experts, & jotted ?s down.
Michael_Coombes 12:10 PM RT @esolcourses2012RT @cybraryman1: @Shaunwilden Put your blog or site on a QR code on your business card #eltchat
OUPELTGlobal 12:11 PM I find any information I can get before the conference is very helpful in helping me prepare.  #eltchat
antoniaclare 12:11 PM @yearinthelifeof I don't walk out of sessions.  I think it's rude (though I'm tempted sometimes) #ELTchat
teflerinha 12:11 PM RT @elawassell: Can we add to the ideas from the previous chat? http://t.co/hZsk4tgb #ELTchat> there's a lot of good advice here- what else?
yearinthelifeof 12:11 PM Simpson still in reflective mood: A tale of two conferences (part two) http://t.co/B6HoRdHC via @yearinthelifeof #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 12:11 PM @stephenburrows i would be lying if I said I hadn't but I dont like to....#ELTchat.
teacherphili 12:11 PM @Shaunwilden @worldteacher sounds like a 'tweet up' on the (ahem, business) cards, then #ELTchat
elawassell 12:11 PM RT@cybraryman1: Tweet to the conference hashtag  so you can get together with others attending at a TweetUp or have lunch, dinner.. #ELTchat
yearinthelifeof 12:12 PM The harch realities: A day in the life of an ELT conference presenter http://t.co/YWaNYubO via @yearinthelifeof #ELTchat
antoniaclare 12:12 PM @stephenburrows I think you should give the speaker a chance to teach you something new.  There is always s/t you can gain #eltchat
elawassell 12:12 PM @stephenburrows I never walked out - when I got to a boring session once I used that time to have a look at the program and rest :] #ELTchat
stephenburrows 12:12 PM @Shaunwilden #eltChat Yeah, I usually do my switch off trick and get a 40 minutes open-eyed sleep
Shaunwilden 12:12 PM @stephenburrows esp if the talk doesnt reflect the conference abstract #ELTchat
worldteacher 12:12 PM RT @stephenburrows: #eltchat, what's the deal on walking out of talks/workshops after 10 minutes etc - do you do it? >No - I feel too guilty
theteacherjames 12:12 PM @stephenburrows That's a tough question. Generally I don't, unless the speaker is really terrible (& that's not happened yet!) #eltchat
billpellowe 12:12 PM @OUPELTGlobal  #eltchat re: personal objectives, it's also useful to see several presentations on a particular "thread", learn more
esolcourses 12:12 PM @billpellowe I don't give handouts anymore myself - I hand out cards with  link to url where ppl can download notes + slides :-) #eltchat
English_safari 12:12 PM shameless plug: I'll be presenting on a  3-month b-learning course I did using #moodle and #AdobeConnect at #mpos12 next week #eltchat
Shaunwilden 12:13 PM RT @FrancesEales: Yes, Sue. In English UK conference last week I decided to focus on lexis and chose most sessions on this. #ELTchat.
elawassell 12:13 PM RT @Shaunwilden: @elawassell @stephenburrows And these days with twitter you can follow another session anyway :-) <-- and that :-) #ELTchat
OUPELTGlobal 12:13 PM Maybe strange coming from me, but I hate talks that are meant to be pedagogical and turn out to be commercial! #eltchat
stephenburrows 12:13 PM RT @teacherphili: @worldteacher @stephenburrows It depends on where I am sitting in the room - at the back, not a problem #Walkout #ELTchat
theteacherjames 12:13 PM @esolcourses @billpellowe Agreed, I know some people like them, but I think lots of print outs is generally a waste. #eltchat
teacherphili 12:13 PM @worldteacher @stephenburrows It depends on where I am sitting in the room - at the back, not a problem #Walkout #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 12:13 PM @elawassell @stephenburrows And these days with twitter you can follow another session anyway :-) #ELTchat.
billpellowe 12:14 PM @teflerinha  right, handouts in workshops are generally written on and used #eltchat
FrancesEales 12:14 PM @esolcourses @jankenb2 #eltchat. Yes, Sue, e.g. in English UK last week I chose sessions about lexical chunks/phrases and focussed on these
Shaunwilden 12:14 PM @antoniaclare @teacherphili Just embarrass them on the way out :-) #ELTchat.
antoniaclare 12:14 PM @Shaunwilden Agree this needs to be clear in the abstract #eltchat
theteacherjames 12:14 PM RT @OUPELTGlobal: Maybe strange coming from me, but I hate talks that are meant to be pedagogical and turn out to be commercial! #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 12:14 PM @theteacherjames @stephenburrows nope! Since i've chosen to be there, i'd suck it up lol :-) #eltchat
teflerinha 12:14 PM @antoniaclare @yearinthelifeof I agree, I wouldn't do that- those at least these days u can legitimately play with ur phone ;) #eltchat
antoniaclare 12:14 PM @teacherphili I'm not sure.  As a presenter, it always worries me when people leave.  I think I haven't pitched it right #Walkout #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 12:14 PM RT @OUPELTGlobal: Maybe strange coming from me, but I hate talks that are meant to be pedagogical and turn out to be commercial! #eltchat
teflerinha 12:14 PM @theteacherjames @esolcourses @billpellowe > Agreed unless handout is sthg to be used in the session #eltchat
theteacherjames 12:15 PM @yitzha_sarwono @stephenburrows You might have been lured there on false pretenses eg it turns out to be a commercial presentation. #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 12:15 PM True :-) RT @Shaunwilden: @elawassell @stephenburrows And these days with twitter you can follow another session anyway :-) #ELTchat.
elawassell 12:15 PM LOL>RT@OUPELTGlobal: Maybe strange coming from me, but I hate talks that are meant to be pedagogical and turn out to be commercial! #ELTchat
teflerinha 12:15 PM @antoniaclare @teacherphili I agree- even from the back it's disconcerting when people leave #eltchat
esolcourses 12:16 PM RT @stephenburrows: #eltchat wouldn't walk out unless offended by smth speaker said...  to avoid bad talks, research speakers first
billpellowe 12:16 PM #eltchat #walkout I've seen this when the title was misleading ("NLP" wasn't natural language processing, it was neurolinguistic program.)
teflerinha 12:16 PM @theteacherjames @OUPELTGlobal > Agree- if promoting bk, I'll mention it, use egs,bt make sure is pedagogical & useful w any mats #eltchat
OUPELTGlobal 12:16 PM Sometimes I tell the speaker I may have to leave, so it's not taken personally, espe. if it's a talk I'm not sure about.  #eltchat
stephenburrows 12:16 PM #eltChat The first thing a veteran teacher advised me before my first conf talk was that poeple WILL walk out, good advice.
Shaunwilden 12:16 PM A lot of what's been said so far is directed to f2f conf - is it the same for online ones? #ELTchat.
theteacherjames 12:16 PM @OUPELTGlobal Totally agree, I hate this! #eltchat
teacherphili 12:16 PM @antoniaclare hmm mayb I've attended more presentations than I've given, but if I was confident about my topic it wouldn't worry me #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 12:17 PM @teacherphili You'd think I was a moderator or something eh :-) #ELTchat.
David__Boughton 12:17 PM @theteacherjames I always doubt they're worth hefty fees they charge. Plus the no time problem. Glad to hear your recommendation. #eltchat
esolcourses 12:17 PM RT @antoniaclare: @yearinthelifeof I don't walk out of sessions.  I think it's rude (though I'm tempted sometimes) #ELTchat same here
theteacherjames 12:17 PM @antoniaclare @teflerinha @OUPELTGlobal It's okay if it's clear in the abstract, but when you don't realise, grrrr. #eltchat
billpellowe 12:17 PM #eltchat #walkout Sadly, saw 30 people leave when they realized the speaker wasn't the famous guy with the same name
Shaunwilden 12:17 PM @stephenburrows @OUPELTGlobal  Good advice - it freaked me out at first but these days I come to accept it #ELTchat.
antoniaclare 12:17 PM @theteacherjames ..sometimes it's a hard for speakers to find the right balance (after all, they are paid by the publisher) #eltchat
yearinthelifeof 12:17 PM Surviving the TEFL conference | One Year in the Life of an English Teacher http://t.co/Dby0Y3DY via @yearinthelifeof #ELTchat
FrancesEales 12:17 PM @antoniaclare @stephenburrows #eltchat And also you can pick up tips about what does and doesn't work when presenting. I'd never walk out...
teacherphili 12:17 PM @Shaunwilden nice change of direction, there #ELTchat.
esolcourses 12:18 PM RT @OUPELTGlobal: Maybe strange coming from me, but I hate talks that are meant to be pedagogical and turn out to be commercial! #eltchat
teacherphili 12:18 PM I guess with online conference we are less ashmed 2 leave the room early - or is there still some guilty feelings attached to that? #ELTchat
yitzha_sarwono 12:18 PM @theteacherjames @stephenburrows it's most likely the case here in Indonesia, so I'm kinda used of it :-) #ELTchat
esolcourses 12:18 PM RT @OUPELTGlobal: I find any information I can get before the conference is very helpful in helping me prepare.  #eltchat
jankenb2 12:19 PM @antoniaclare @theteacherjames #eltchat Publishers c/b highly regarded in ed/open forum discussions. Gd pub's & their reps are transparent.
yearinthelifeof 12:19 PM @esolcourses @antoniaclare ...read phantom message, look concerned and get up and walk out quickly #ELTchat
billpellowe 12:19 PM #eltchat Conference tip: NEVER start a question with, "Sorry, I missed the beginning so I don't know if you covered this but..."
antoniaclare 12:19 PM @teacherphili That's the great thing about online conf. You can pick + choose, watch while playing monopoly, cooking dinner etc. #ELTchat
OUPELTGlobal 12:19 PM Have never participated online. Very different from f2f, I imagine.  #eltchat
Shaunwilden 12:19 PM RT @teacherphili: I guess with online conf  we are less ashmed 2 leave the room early ? #ELTchat
teflerinha 12:19 PM @teacherphili #eltchat As an online speaker, I like to see that I haven't lost the audience along the way :)
stephenburrows 12:19 PM @teacherphili #eltChat yeah, I'll be having lunch in 20 minutes, just thought I'd pop in while I could ;-)
worldteacher 12:20 PM I don't usually leave online conferences early either - even if I'm not enjoying it - I'm still afraid I might miss something!! #eltchat
OUPELTGlobal 12:20 PM RT @yearinthelifeof: @esolcourses @antoniaclare ...read phantom message, look concerned and get up and walk out quickly #ELTchat #eltchat
esolcourses 12:20 PM @OUPELTGlobal same here. I sometimes choose to attend commercial talks, but wouldn't appreciate having one sneakily sprung on me! #eltchat
Shaunwilden 12:20 PM RT @yearinthelifeof: ...read phantom message, look concerned and get up and walk out quickly #ELTchat
stephenburrows 12:20 PM #eltChat the other good thing about online conf is you can multi-task without offending anybody. EltChat + an episode of Homeland = no probs
theteacherjames 12:20 PM @David__Boughton I understand, you have to weigh the huge cost compared to the benefit. Helps if there'll be a strong PLN presence. #eltchat
Shaunwilden 12:20 PM RT @yearinthelifeof:  There's a technique to this nowadays: look surprised as you would when vibrating phone text message comes...#ELTchat.
teflerinha 12:20 PM @billpellowe #eltchat LOL! yes, definitely.
elawassell 12:21 PM @Shaunwilden It's easier to 'politely leave' them
Shaunwilden 12:21 PM @worldteacher And how many times does prove true? #ELTchat.
antoniaclare 12:21 PM RT @Shaunwilden: RT @yearinthelifeof: ...read phantom message, look concerned and get up and walk out quickly #ELTchat Now we know yr tricks
esolcourses 12:21 PM @yearinthelifeof @antoniaclare LOL! Crafty ;-) #eltchat
teflerinha 12:21 PM @theteacherjames @David__Boughton #eltchat Yes, and find out if others rate it- spent a LOT last yr on fairly useless conference #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 12:21 PM @Shaunwilden @teacherphili so what're your tips for attending conference then? :-) #backontrack #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 12:22 PM RT @jankenb2: #eltchat how do u best organize yourself to retain what's learned from a conf? What tools, practices, strategies do u suggest?
theteacherjames 12:22 PM @teflerinha @David__Boughton Ouch... #eltchat
antoniaclare 12:22 PM I think one of the hardest things nowadays is time management, ie NOT attending too many webinars, or u never get any work done ;) #eltchat
David__Boughton 12:22 PM @theteacherjames yes that's true. The big Ontario conference was 3 days ago, but no time to go. Too bad. #eltchat
teacherphili 12:22 PM RT @elawassell: @Shaunwilden I tend to do knitting sometimes - still listening! #ELTchat > I hear knitting focuses listening skills
theteacherjames 12:22 PM @jankenb2 @antoniaclare Absolutely. Pubs have the right to sell there products, they often provide financial support after all. #eltchat
jankenb2 12:22 PM #eltchat how do you best organize yourself to retain what's learned from a conf? What tools, practices, strategies do you suggest?
worldteacher 12:22 PM RT @Shaunwilden: @worldteacher And how many times does prove true? #ELTchat. >Not many!! :-)
antoniaclare 12:23 PM I love the way great bloggers like @worldteacher write up blog summaries of conferences/sessions #eltchat
jankenb2 12:23 PM @elawassell @Shaunwilden #eltchat This brings up the importance of the FB form. Impt on the listener and presenter point of view for gd FB.
billpellowe 12:23 PM #eltchat Conference tip: Book hotel early to get room  close  to venue. Afternoon nap. Change before on-site social events. Drop off bag.
yitzha_sarwono 12:23 PM #ELTchat i love online conf for a chance to attend a talk i'd probably hard to attend in real life :-)
esolcourses 12:23 PM RT @jankenb2 #eltchat how do you best organize yourself to retain what's learned from confs? What tools, practices, strategies do U suggest?
teflerinha 12:23 PM @theteacherjames @jankenb2 @antoniaclare > Agree- but does need to be something in it for participants other than being sold to. #eltchat
theteacherjames 12:24 PM @SophiaKhan4 @teflerinha @David__Boughton I'm a freelancer, so I've paid for every conference I've been too. #eltchat
OUPELTGlobal 12:24 PM @teflerinha For me, just be honest, If it's based on a product, say so. If it's pedagogical, it shd be useful even w/o the product #eltchat
teflerinha 12:24 PM @FrancesEales Yes, me! I hope that just the fact of taking notes helps stuff to go into my memory (as notes then sit in pile) #eltchat
esolcourses 12:24 PM Sorry folks, but I've got to shoot off now - thanks for sharing yr great ideas, and hope to catch you at #eltchat tonight !
yitzha_sarwono 12:24 PM @antoniaclare agree! But they are so tempting! :-) #ELTchat
worldteacher 12:24 PM RT @antoniaclare: I love the way great bloggers like @worldteacher write up blog summaries of conferences/sessions #eltchat > Why thank you!
David__Boughton 12:24 PM @teflerinha and for most of us it is out of pocket. Do many people get schools to pay? #eltchat
teacherphili 12:24 PM I still think @sandymillin set the standard for tweeting constantly during a talk but then summarising that into a digestable blog #ELTchat
teflerinha 12:24 PM @esolcourses @jankenb2 I'm hopeless at this! I make notes which I then shove in a pile...tips please?! #eltchat
worldteacher 12:24 PM @jankenb2 I'm the old-fashioned type - copious hand-written notes which I often summarise in a blog post later. #eltchat
FrancesEales 12:24 PM #eltchat Does anyone end up with lots of notes that they never look at again? Any tips?
OUPELTGlobal 12:25 PM @FrancesEales I put all my notes and materials in one place and then take some time after to sift through and reflect. very usefuL #eltchat
teflerinha 12:25 PM @OUPELTGlobal #eltchat Yes, agree, that's what I always try to use as a baseline for a book promoting session
antoniaclare 12:25 PM @teflerinha @FrancesEales  I write notes just because the act of writing them helps me to focus.  rarely read them later #eltchat
David__Boughton 12:26 PM @antoniaclare especially nowadays all the webinars are the same: incorporating tech in the class. Again? Really? #eltchat
teflerinha 12:26 PM @billpellowe @yitzha_sarwono #eltchat Naps very important- esp if there is social in the evening #lightweight
yitzha_sarwono 12:26 PM @David__Boughton @teflerinha nope! Had to pay myself :-) #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 12:26 PM @teflerinha @FrancesEales I try to go over notes / tweets etc to make them in a blog post #eltchat
jankenb2 12:26 PM @teflerinha @esolcourses For OL I open every suggested link w/o review then cull after talk. I may bkmark or cloud , print or read. #eltchat
billpellowe 12:26 PM #eltchat What apps are most useful when attending conferences? Note-taking etc. Or is pen and paper best?
teacherphili 12:26 PM ..and @chiasuan... I don't quite know how she does it (write up/summarise conference talks) to the extent that she does. #Obsessive #ELTchat
teacherphili 12:27 PM I found it easier to watch the plenary sessions over breakfast at IATEFL Glasgow online b4 heading over to the Armadillo for more #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 12:27 PM @billpellowe  I tend to use evernote and my tablet / phone camera #eltchat
teflerinha 12:28 PM @teacherphili #eltchat That's a good tip- I NEVER manage to make the plenaries.
jankenb2 12:28 PM @Shaunwilden @teflerinha @FrancesEales #eltchat For F2F I take notes to synthesize as many said, BUT, use preselect as key. I know topic B4
antoniaclare 12:28 PM @teacherphili Yes, @chiasuan is great with her moment by moment tweets too.  Also @sandymillin and @vickyloras #supertweeters ;) #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 12:28 PM @billpellowe Also found that means can go straight to mentioned website and bookmark it for later #eltchat
teflerinha 12:28 PM @David__Boughton Was out of my own pocket- but publishers will pay (for conference, not a fee) if I'm presenting for them #eltchat
OUPELTGlobal 12:28 PM @billpellowe I've started writing all my notes on my Ipod. They're always available to me and I can look thru them often.  #eltchat
teflerinha 12:29 PM @David__Boughton #eltchat Also, if you are self-employed conferences are tax deductible!
David__Boughton 12:29 PM @theteacherjames @SophiaKhan4 @teflerinha and what would you say about your return on investment? #eltchat
antoniaclare 12:29 PM Recordings of webinars and plenaries really good way to catch up on sessions you miss #eltchat
David__Boughton 12:29 PM @antoniaclare is that a reason to stay home? Save cash and time and still get all the info. #eltchat
yearinthelifeof 12:29 PM @FrancesEales I used to, then I stopped making so many notes. I listen intently and if I like I ask presenter for contact details #eltchat
teacherphili 12:29 PM @teflerinha and it's easier to 'walk out' :-) #ELTchat
elawassell 12:29 PM #ELTchat @billpellowe I take lots of photos. Still note things with pen- can't type fast enough. After getting back - EVERNOTE!
antoniaclare 12:29 PM @David__Boughton Yes, need to be selective indeed #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 12:30 PM @antoniaclare @teacherphili @chiasuan @sandymillin @vickyloras they sure are #superlivetweeters #ELTchat
billpellowe 12:30 PM #eltchat Often plenaries are too general (sometimes generic) to be useful. That said, Ken Wilson gave a great one at JALT 2010 or 2011
worldteacher 12:30 PM With multi-session F2F conferences, I like to go with colleagues - we split up, attend different sessions & share thoughts later. #eltchat
FrancesEales 12:30 PM #eltchat What do you find is the best web-based place to store articles, references, notes from conferences and elsewhere?
yitzha_sarwono 12:31 PM @antoniaclare yes, one of the reason i love webinar #ELTchat
David__Boughton 12:31 PM @SophiaKhan4 @teflerinha @theteacherjames  I've never gone because my school has never paid. #cheapskate #eltchat
theteacherjames 12:31 PM @David__Boughton @SophiaKhan4 @teflerinha Worth every penny. So rewarding. This sums it up: http://t.co/uU7kYMqZ #eltchat
teflerinha 12:31 PM @David__Boughton @theteacherjames @SophiaKhan4 Depends on conference- IATEFL always worthwhile..- but some exp mistakes #eltchat
teacherphili 12:31 PM Evernote can synthesise your notes. It is available on nearly all platforms and  uploads to cloud @Sandymillin summary of #ELTchat 14 March

jankenb2 12:32 PM @elawassell @billpellowe Love this idea. With so many smart phones and photo ready devices, photo will assist in post reflection. #eltchat
teacherphili 12:33 PM @antoniaclare @yitzha_sarwono I don't deserve to be in such high company... I am a mere pretender, a fraud. #ELTchat

antoniaclare 12:34 PM @jankenb2 @elawassell I take photos of the screen as reminder, but nowadays many presenters will upload their slides anyway #ELTchat
FrancesEales 12:34 PM @billpellowe #eltchat  A good plenary can be thought-provoking. I usually take away about one or two key points and that's enough I feel.
antoniaclare 12:35 PM @David__Boughton No, going to the conference live you get to meet people in person (drink, dance, laugh etc.) - no comparison ;) #eltchat
teacherphili 12:35 PM I tend to get more from (big conference) plenaries when I watch it back later and am able to pause/rewind #ELTchat #ConcentrationProblem
Shaunwilden 12:35 PM @teflerinha @FrancesEales  and this is a blogpost by @MrChrisJWilson  on how he uses it http://t.co/nR9x0m8R #eltchat
billpellowe 12:36 PM #eltchat Conference tip: Don't be shy. Socialize.
Shaunwilden 12:36 PM @teacherphili  I agree, there is a lot of food for thought in a big plenary so am glad of the recording and the twitter backchannel #eltchat
teflerinha 12:36 PM @antoniaclare @David__Boughton > Agree, sometimes the most useful stuff comes from chats outside sessions (and having fun) #eltchat
antoniaclare 12:36 PM @teacherphili @yitzha_sarwono  LOL ;) #ELTchat
elawassell 12:36 PM I started taking photos of newly met people with their badges - makes it easier to put a face to a twitter handle or business card #ELTchat
yitzha_sarwono 12:37 PM @antoniaclare @David__Boughton agree! Hard to beat the real thing :-)
theteacherjames 12:37 PM To be honest, I never take notes or photos. Prefer to let things percolate in the old brain for a bit first. #eltchat #creamrisestothetop
Shaunwilden 12:37 PM @OUPELTGlobal  As a speaker or attendee? #eltchat
elawassell 12:37 PM RT @antoniaclare: No, going to the conference live you get to meet people in person (drink, dance, laugh etc.) - no comparison ;) #ELTchat
FrancesEales 12:37 PM #eltchat One of the best ways I've found to retain key ideas from a conference is to offer to give a TD session to teachers in your school.
OUPELTGlobal 12:37 PM How useful is it to have a blog post to follow the talk? #eltchat
jankenb2 12:37 PM @FrancesEales @billpellowe #eltchat Yes. Remember cognitive load. We don't want to aim for overkill. It's in layering that we learn Reflect
teacherphili 12:37 PM Promote speakers' sessions on Twitter.  Good way of getting kudos at the talk #ELTchat
antoniaclare 12:37 PM RT @teflerinha: @antoniaclare @David__Boughton >sometimes the most useful stuff comes from chats outside sessions (and having fun) #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 12:38 PM Agree! Build my PLN that way too :-) RT @billpellowe: #eltchat Conference tip: Don't be shy. Socialize.
elawassell 12:38 PM @antoniaclare I learn a lot from the chat and banter between session or during evening events :-)
David__Boughton 12:38 PM @theteacherjames great  pic. I think most of you are from Britain. True? And why Britain so far ahead on prof devlpmnt in elt? #eltchat
OUPELTGlobal 12:38 PM @Shaunwilden I was thinking as an attendee, but that's a good point.  #eltchat

teflerinha 12:39 PM @David__Boughton @theteacherjames Don't think mostly British? (tho I am) #eltchat Might just be time of chat...
Shaunwilden 12:39 PM @OUPELTGlobal Then I'd say not that imp it depends if you usually use them or not #eltchat

David__Boughton 12:42 PM @teflerinha @theteacherjames  I find most elt material online has a British source. the elt industry seems much more developed. #eltchat
antoniaclare 12:43 PM Conference tip: Try to remember people's names. Ask them+look at their badge and try to use their name when talking to them to fix #eltchat
BobK99 12:43 PM @Shaunwilden  #eltchat Oops - up to here in STUFF. I'll be with you in a minute...
David__Boughton 12:43 PM @theteacherjames I think comparing the industries in various countries would be interesting. #eltchat
OUPELTGlobal 12:43 PM I would think that reading a post days later would help me remember and reflect on the session, maybe even add to it ... #eltchat
teflerinha 12:43 PM @David__Boughton @theteacherjames Ah, that may be true, certainly a big industry. #eltchat
antoniaclare 12:44 PM Another tip - send a quick email to the people you meet after the conference, to try and continue the conversation (via@chucksandy) #eltchat
billpellowe 12:44 PM #eltchat Which do you prefer, small focused conference (100 people), large multi-thread conference (1,500+ people), something in between?
elawassell 12:44 PM Sorry folks - have to go now. Thank you for a lovely chat!
Shaunwilden 12:44 PM @teacherphili We can see you sneaking out! #ELTchat.
