We are gearing up for a busy and exciting time in Louisville next week! We wanted to take a moment to share several tools you can use to maximize your social networking and information gathering at the convention. We will be using Pokens, QR Codes for Presenter Handouts, and lots of social media!
Below and at the following printer-friendly URL you will find detailed information about these tools: http://bit.ly/SGJiAD
We have provided several tools you can use to maximize your social networking and information gathering at the convention. We will be using Pokens, QR Codes for Presenter Handouts, and lots of social media!
You’ve heard about them! What can they do?
All convention attendees will receive a Poken. When you check in at the AECT Registration table, you will receive your Poken. It can be hung around your neck with your name badge.
By now, you should already have received an email from Poken with log-in information to access your PokenHub Dashboard. If not, you can contact Kristin at Poken; her email is email@example.com. Once you have logged into your Poken account and updated your profile, you are ready to begin networking!
Networking: As you meet and greet colleagues, old and new, give them a Poken High Five! Touch the hands of the Pokens together and when the light turns green, you have exchanged contact information! Social butterflies - Be aware that each Poken can gather up to 60 touches before it must be synced via computer.
Syncing your Poken: As soon as you have a chance, sync your Poken with your PokenHub online. Simply plug your Poken into the USB port of your computer, login to your PokenHub, and click “Sync My Poken.”

QR Codes: Collect Presentation Handouts through your PokenHub!
An additional capability through Poken has allowed Presenters to create unique QR Codes and URLs to share their presentation handouts.
Using your mobile device (smartphones, iPads, etc.) scan the QR Code with any QR Code Reader or the Poken App! Once you scan the QR Code, you will be able to see their presentation document in your PokenHub. Attendees may download the poken app for their mobile devices to scan the QR code - http://www.poken.com/mobile (available only for iOS and MS Windows Mobile devices).
As our convention draws near, it's time to put our social media strategy into action. Below, you will find ways to use AECT social media before, during, and after our convention.
