  • Welcome to our session on “Building a State OMK Program through Today’s Technology”. My name is Georgene Bender.OMK Project Director with Cliff Lewis, OMK State Coordinator and Lou Doughtery, Florida National Guard Youth Coordinator
  • We will focus our presentation on our use of BLOGS, WEBINARS AND ONLINE REGISTRATION.
  • How many of you have a website?How many of you have a blog?Websites, if you don’t control them can be limiting. We have found the blogs are great way to connect and keep in touch with our military youth.
  • Blogs have subscribers who get emails when information is added or updated. They are known as followers.
  • Webinars are a great tool to connect and inform. We have basically used them for camp orientation since our campers are from all over the state. We do a 1 hour webinar one week before residential camp for youth and parents. We do about 4 per year and are in our 3rd year. The webinars are growing in popularity.
  • We use elluminatelive, but there are many other web conference systems. Our system shows Who is on lineChat conversationA whiteboard for writing, powerpoint slides, pictures and much moreUsually had one person as the main speaker and one that helps monitor chat questions or help settle tech issues.
  • You need to schedule a room with your conference system and get a URL to then send to your audience. If you use the Eventbrite registration system, you can send an email burst to all with this information very easily.
