Almost two weeks ago I was talking with Jeff Herb on Voxer and he mentioned that he would love to see my new school sometime. While traditionally that would mean a trip from Illinois to Texas (which still isn’t out of the question), a new tool has emerged that has enabled video broadcasting to anyone interested in watching. I suggested that we Periscope our buildings sometime and after about 15 minutes of rapid fire ideas, the periScopeOut was born.
We want educators to share their stories. Whether that means touring their building or talking specifically about avenues to student learning, the power of diverse ideas is what will continue revolutionizing our profession.
There is great wealth in having the opportunity to ‘scope out’ the ways in which others are doing what you’re doing (or looking to do).
What the heck is Periscope?
Periscope is an app that allows users to broadcast a live video stream. People can watch the stream via the Periscope app or simply by clicking on the link that gets shared via Twitter.
