  • 2. What Is An Amplified Event? An amplified event: • The talks and discussions are 'amplified' through use of networked technologies in order to extend the reach of the event deliberations. Can include: • Amplification of the speaker's talk: e.g. Video- streaming; video/audio recording; … • Amplification of the audiences' voice: e.g. use of Twitter to ask questions and discuss ideas Can be carried out: • Top-down • Bottom-up 2 See http://en.wikipedia.org/ wiki/Amplified_conference
  • 3. Evidence of its Significance We are now seeing: • Variety of tools used for curating an event’s digital content (e.g. Storify) • A new profession starting to emerge: the event amplifier • Events managing event amplification e.g. video–streaming; hiring event amplifiers; producing guidelines; … • Reports on best practices being commissioned e.g. “Practices for Event Amplification: a Greening Events II Report” 3
  • 4. Why Is It Important? Event amplification can: • Maximise impact of ideas at events • Provide additional professional development opportunities e.g. see “Open content and open events: Professional development in an amplified world” • Provide environment benefits due to reduced need to travel • Provide marketing opportunities for events • Provide learning opportunities related to use of distance learning, MOOCS, ... 4
  • 5. Why is it Important Now? Event amplification is important now: • Ubiquitous networks • Proliferation of mobile devices • Ability to make use of existing tools e.g. bundled in (Skype) or readily available & used in other contexts (Twitter) • We’ve seen a gestation period before it became accepted as valuable • Use is now mature e.g. less inappropriate content on Twitter walls 5
  • 6. What Should/Could I Do? You can: • Engage in event amplification at ILI by lurking • Engage actively be participating in the back channel discussions • Speakers can encourage tweeting during your talks • Take a pro-active approach to amplification of your organisation’s events 6
  • 7. Biases and Prejudices Note: • I wrote a paper on “Using Networked Technologies To Support Conferences” in 2005 • I created the “Amplified Conference” Wikipedia entry • Lorcan Dempsey, who coined the term, was my boss • @eventamplifier is a friend You would therefore expect me to be enthusiastic about amplified events! 7
