Vlogging (video blogging) is very popular. YouTube stars and social media gurus have been part of our culture for years and joining the video blogging world has never been easier. A smartphone, Periscope and YouTube essentially mean anyone can produce their own semi-interactive channel in minutes.
Reported media and ongoing conversations with students have led to the growing realisation that teachers and parents need to be aware of how ‘instant content creation and publication’ is affecting young people. As a consequence, a group of teachers are looking to experiment with Periscope to understand how this ‘simple’ platform impacts thought process, presentation skills and digital profile. These ‘Scopes’ can be watched and commented upon in real time, or watched back within 24 hours, through the Periscope app. An archive of content will also be posted on www.educate1to1.org
