Earlier this week, my group presented our team teaching presentation on Social TV in my social media class, #NewhouseSM4. Our presentation focused on the growth of integrating social media applications while watching television. The Social TV apps we focused on included GetGlue, SocialGuide, Trendrr and Miso. Our group created a unique hashtag, #AKASocialTV, which we used throughout the semester to identify tweets regarding our project and Social TV in general. I used a lot of new tools to collaborate with my team members including Pearltrees, Storify, G+ Hangouts and Slideshare. We created our very own virtual classroom and could collaborate on our own time to complete the project.
I participated in my very first G+ Hangout with my professor, DR4Ward, and my other team members to discuss our progress with our presentation. The video chatting aspect of G+ is similar to Skype, but the hangout allowed us to simultaneously collaborate and edit our presentation together while DR4WARD gave us advice. DR4WARD’s dog, Ty, also joined us for our chat! DR4WARD showed us the YouTube app which allowed us to watch a YouTube video at the same time. It mutes everyones voice out during the video, but there is a “Push to talk” button which allows users to speak if they want to. I will definitely use G+ Hangouts more in the future because it offers a lot of different apps and features to collaborate with team members.
My group also collaborated using Pearltrees, which allowed us to collect and curate web content related to Social TV. I was able to see what research and information my team members found and add my own articles to our #AKASocialTV Pearltree. Prior to using Pearltrees, I had only used Google Docs which does not have the same sharing abilities as Pearltrees. I will use this tool in the future to share content and information with classmates and team members.
After our presentation, we used hashtracking.com to run analytics on our #AKASocialTV presentation. As of today, we generated 1,190 impressions reaching an audience of 830 followers. We also used TweetReach to find our Twitter reach report results. According to TweetReach, 1,392 accounts were reached and we left 4,432 impressions using our hashtag, #AKASocialTV.
Take a look at our Slideshare presentation here:
