Free Webinar Series “NTENStory” in May

NTEN-501TechClubIn May NTEN offers a three week free webinar series on Thursdays at 2pm ET to our Tech4Good SWFL members:

Bethany Lister,  @betalister Community Program Coordinator at NTEN wrote:

We have an upcoming series of webinars we’d like to share with the Tech Club community. We have set up the promo code “NTENStory ” that can be used to get free access to any and all of these events.

Over the last year, The Rockefeller Foundation has teamed up with Hattaway Communications to create Hatch for Good, a new digital storytelling platform designed to help social impact organizations of all kinds use the power of narrative and networks to increase your reach, resources and impact. Learn how to effectively use Hatch for Good with in-depth instructions and prompts to create stories that will inspire and increase impact. Storytelling experts from Hattaway Communications will be available to provide insights and answer questions.

May 7th   – 2pm: Building Your Storytelling Strategy & Capacity

In this workshop, we’ll help you build your “Narrative Framework,” the overarching story that helps provide structure and consistency for all of the individual stories your organization will tell. We will also identify resources and skills organizations require as well as you as an individual need to share your stories.

Key Takeaways:

  • Foundation of your organization’s narrative
  • Clear idea of the audiences your stories will speak to
  • Definition of your organization’s (storytelling) goals
  • Skills and resources needed to become a successful storytelling organization

May 14th – 2pm: Creating Stories that Capture Interest & Imagination

In today’s competitive media environment, only the most compelling content gets noticed and shared. Storytelling is both an art and a science—and stories for social impact must show people as active agents of change, who play a central role in creating solutions to the problems they face.

In this workshop, we’ll help you map out your story based on a tried-and-true formula seen in narratives across the world.

Key Takeaways:

  • Clear idea of your storytelling objectives
  • Structured storyline using the Social Impact Story Map to capture your audience’s interest and imagination
  • Setting the right format for your stories

May 21st – 2pm: Engaging Your Communities & Measuring Impact

In this workshop, you will get guidance on best practices for using popular platforms and social networks for storytelling and setting metrics for evaluating your digital storytelling efforts.

Key Takeaways:

  • Tips and guides on using popular platforms for storytelling
  • Setting the voice and tone of your stories on social media
  • Best practices on evaluating your digital storytelling effort

Make sure to use the promo code “NTENStory “. 

UPDATE  4/22/15:  Having problem with the discount code?

The code can be used an unlimited amount of times. NTEN has an issue where if you complete checkout and then try to get the next event in the same session (being logged in) it still sees it as already being applied.

We are now suggesting folks add all events to their cart before completing checkout to avoid this. Anyone that already went through then hit the error would be able to just go back and add the rest.

If you received the “already used error”  logging out or clearing cookies should also refresh the code.

Instructions by Eli of Net2Vancouver

Update  4/16/2015:

To clarify: You don’t have to be an NTEN member to take advantage of this Webinar Series this May. You go through registration process for the events, all the way through until you get to the Shopping Cart page (see little screenshot below)

  • There is a field for “Discount Code”.
  • Enter “NTENStory” , Click on “Apply Code” and
  • the “Order Total” will go to 0.00.
  • Now you can check out.

Apply Discount Code NTENStory

And of course, save the date of May 5th, 6pm for our next Tech4Good meeting. Announcements will come soon.

Tech4good SWFL News: Name Change, NTEN Webinars Discounts and txtsignal partnership

This month we have taken the opportunity for a series of changes to finalize our techclub’s name. We have struggled since the beginning to keep Netsquared or 501TechClub in the name. Then it was NFN4Good TechClub as quite a few NFN4Good members joined but that tied it also to the Naples Free-Net.  After almost 2 years now, it feels that this initiative is so much bigger than NFN.

First logo Draft by Homer Gaines, DesignDonationThe new name “Tech4Good SWFL” puts our group in line with the other dual-affiliated TechClubs, combining Tech4Good with a location.

Tech4Good SWFL it is. Our own hashtag is now #t4gswfl

Homer Gaines of DesignDonation has been working on a logo for our Tech4Good club and before he left for Japan on his honeymoon with his wonderful Tami, he sent us the first draft. We will continue working on it once both designers get back.

NTEN gives discount to 501TechClub members – T4GSWFL

In February, NTEN provided a discount code to 501TechClub members of 20% for their webinars.  And to celebrate our name change, we asked Bethany Lister to make the CouponCode T4GSWFL

NTEN-501TechClubHow it will work out?

  • NTEN Non-Members: 20% Tech Club discount
  • NTEN Members: 50% Member Discount + 20% Tech Club Discount = 70% off regular price
  • Code can be used as many times as folks like on webinars and Labs (not conferences)
  • Simply apply the code at checkout and done.

Look at the schedule of NTEN webinars and events 

Text messaging service txtsignal partners with Tech4Good SWFL

Margaux Pagan, Tech4Good Orlando,  MattDonovan, TXTSignal  and Melissa Yakimetz, Tech4Good Orlando

Margaux Pagan, Tech4Good Orlando, MattDonovan, TXTSignal and Melissa Yakimetz, Tech4Good Orlando

txtsignal - private group messagesAfter meeting Matt Donovan, CEO of txtsignal, at the first Orlando Tech4Good group in mid-February, we continued our conversation on how non-profits can leverage SMS /TXT messaging with their constituents. And earlier this month we started a cooperation with txtsignal to use text messaging with our Tech4Good group so all nonprofit members are able to observe a use case in a real life situation, learn how it works and what can be done with it.

To sign-up, send in a text T4GOOD to 94033 – You will receive a reply from the system which will ask you to confirm your sign-up by texting ‘yes’ back.

We thank Matt Donovan for his generosity in providing us with the platform for our club. If your organization would like to use this system as well, as a member you will receive a 10% on the monthly fees, use T4Gswfl as the coupon code on sign up.
