I thought today I'd share a few quick and easy to use apps that can result in simplified sharing.
1. Instagram - Take a picture and share it.
Great free app, easy to use and connect with other social media apps/tools.
For years I've shared with principals, teachers, admin, and anyone who'd listen: Blogging made easy is a picture a day.
People love seeing what is going on in your classrooms/buildings everyday. Instagram makes it easy to share and to share to multiple venues.
2. Vine - 5 second videos that loop.
This tool allows you take up to 5 seconds of footage and share it. You can share your Vines directly from the app to Twitter ,Facebook, and Tumblr if you choose.
Best suggestion: Ask your kids to create a Vine each day demonstrating the learning that is going on that day.
3. Periscope - Live Streaming made easy.
Live streaming is popular, hop on the band wagon and give it a try. Classes could share weekly conversations about what they are doing, connect with other broadcasters, ask questions and connect with a global audience.
Admins, setup a regular schedule and do a live Q/A or weekly roundup of the going ons in your building/district.
Protip - Make sure you choose "Save to camera roll" after your broadcast to upload your video to your YouTube Channel later . (Also film in landscape)
Hope you give any one or all three of these a try this month.
You can find me on all three, just search for TheTechSpec.
Stay tuned and
