Follow Conference Hashtags to Glean Resources

Almost every education conference worth its salt today has a Twitter hashtag associated with it. The next time you're wishing you were at a conference that you couldn't attend, follow the Twitter hashtag.  I did this today to keep up with the Tweets from the Destination Innovation conference in Banff (#dest_2012). If you use TweetDeck, like I do, you can create a column just for the hashtag. While this isn't the same as being at the physical conference it does provide a good way to follow the ideas and resources shared by presenters and participants at the conference. For example, today I learned about some inexpensive robotics kits by just following #dest_2012 in Twitter.
