Making it way to the “Best of 2015” list in the Apple App Store, Periscope is a free, easy to use and fascinating app that is sure to grow exponentially. When you show Periscope to new users their curiosity instantly peaks and the ease of the app gets them quickly exploring.
The first time I received my first scope and saw turtles crawling up on a beach in Hawaii, I thought this can add a lot of engagement to education. Virtual field trips, expert speakers, interviews, collaboration are all easily reached through this app.
Yes, there would be privacy issues to deal with but as with all social media platforms used in education a proper plan should be in place.
As Perioscope would say, “Explore the world through someone else’s eyes.”
Check out the video below to see how Periscope works.
