Okay, so who hasn't heard about Periscope?
It's okay to raise your hand. About 8 minutes ago I hadn't either. And I am still not really sure I get it but I'm going for it! Why not!?! I mean YOLO! As my 15 and 9 year old remind me regularly. HA, I say! I was the YOLO poster child before YOLO was even a thing my sweet children!
When we returned from TpTVegas15, many teacher bloggers were jumping in and signing up and broadcasting; but 2 weeks ago when that was happening I couldn't figure out what in the world it was or how to sign up so I could see what all the fuss was!
Today I had a minute and thought it my duty to share some Periscope info with you. I started by checking out their website. Useless so don't bother! I then googled, "What the heck is Periscope!?!" And my friends, many articles came up!
http://bit.ly/1ecLeRj This was my fav based on name alone! :)
http://bit.ly/1CLNOnG This one had a few more points about functionality.
http://bit.ly/1CSzmzy This one has some tips about why it is good for business! And I love the name of her blog! :)
I am thinking this might be a fun way to share snippets of classroom life but I need to think that through because I don't want my kiddos faces all over the globe!
So, follow me @teacherlifeisgood on Periscope and maybe I'll figure out something to stream about! :) If you are already on Periscope, share your handle in the comments so we can follow you!
