12th Day of Christmas–Periscope

Hi Guys, I decided that I wanted a day off from blogging. I decided to catch up with friends yesterday and I went to visit a friend. Today’s tip is about a tool that you can use the night before an exam. If you email your student’s at a certain time, you can make yourself available through video feed and they can message you and ask questions. You could do a revision session from the comfort of you own office. I have done this before with students and it’s boosted my exam results by 10%. I don’t put it down to this 100% but I do consider it a factor.

I will be writing a blog about how you can use periscope with your students to stream your screen using a Google API. This will help you use your screen rather than relying on the phone.

All you need to do is download Periscope!
