#TechTipTuesday - Checking out Anchor

So this week my tip is about checking out something new.

I'm exploring the potential behind a relatively new app called Anchor.
(Link at bottom of post)

As far as I can tell, it is a self proclaimed public radio of the Internet, made by the people using the app. The twist is the connections/collaboration it offers.

Short version: Record a brief question, conversation, idea, etc and post it, send the post around to all your favorite social media platforms and then wait for listeners to respond back.

Quick potential uses:
Short updates from your learning spaces with potential for parent/community connections 
Monthly Q/A's (walk parents through the learning happening in your room)
Encourage your learners to be the voice of your school, treat it like an online radio station 
Share trailers from up coming concerts
Poetry readings 
Dynamic book chats

The possibilities are endless, so get out there and try something new.

Anchor - Radio by the people by Anchor FM Inc.

As always,
Stay tuned and Stay connected.
