Seriously...I have been asking myself this question since I last heard about it last summer. I fought it...I really did. My brain has been churning lately with some ideas and now...
Not sure what Periscope is? I did some research when trying to decide how to explain it to you...and the people over at www.socialmediaweek.org seemed to do it best. I've linked to their original post and then summarized some of it for you here. CLICK HERE to see their full post (well worth it!).
Periscope is essentially a way to broadcast live--like a mini TV station. People broadcast their cats sleeping. They broadcast seminars. They broadcast themselves cooking.
This is not what I plan to do.
My goal is really to continue to find ways to make my blog more interactive and to find more ways to truly HELP teachers do their job well. Professional development is so lacking in our schools...and I have been so blessed to have the opportunity to share my knowledge via my blog--but I have had so many requests for more. People want to know more about teaching methods. About how I DO certain things. I have a host of other ideas...and you'll just have to wait to see! The thought of having my voice out there kind of freaks me out a little bit...but I promise to try to not be too cheesy. I will also give the disclaimer that I am not cute nor giggly nor fashion forward. Still possibly interested?
You are a brave soul.
So--I'm curious to hear your thoughts. Who is on Periscope already? Who is a little intrigued by the chance to have a more interactive "blog post" format where you can see and hear the information--not just read it? I would really and truly like to know your thoughts . . . so if you are willing to take two minutes (seriously . . . maybe not even) to take this little survey, it will help me see what my readers are thinking about the whole idea!
