This Spring, I have been asked to participate in a panel discussion about a video. The plan is to show the 45 min video then have a panel discussion about the video. I thought it would be nice to have a twitter back channel discussion during the video as a way of collection questions to guide out discussion. I was going to use Twitterfall and a common hash tag to show the comments as the movie played.
My question is: Is this a worthwhile thing to do? (I hate it when people use technology just to use technology)
If we were to expand this to the entire conference, how do you get the word out? Is it by word of mouth or is there something listed in the program? I see such potential in this. One common complaint that people have about this conference is that they "good" workshops are always opposite each other in the schedule and people have to make some tough choices. Twitter seems like a nice way to share info about what is going on in the workshops.
Is there anything I need to be aware of as we start this? I would love to hear form others about their experiences?
