Using Twitter, Games & Animated Videos in Personal Finance

2,739 views

Published on

Unlike other MFLN Personal Finance webinars that discuss subject matter content (e.g., credit, investing, and life insurance), this webinar will describe three interactive technology-based outreach methods to deliver financial information to military families: Twitter, online games, and videos. Participants will learn how to use the social media tool Twitter, types of information to Tweet, how to engage with followers, and how to measure social media impact. Participants will then each tweet a message to other webinar participants via the chat box. The second topic to be discussed is PowerPoint games modeled after the popular television game shows Jeopardy! and Who Wants to be a Millionaire! Participants will then collectively create an interactive Military Money Millionaire Game by each contributing a multiple choice question with four possible answers. The game will be finished after the webinar and e-mailed to registered participants. The final webinar topic is instructional videos. The presenter will describe how to create animated videos with speaking avatar characters.
