#EdTech Thought

Have y’all ever heard of #PassTheScopeEDU? 

  • #PassTheScopeEDU (www.PassTheScopeEDU.com) was an idea that posed a question, what would happen if educators came together to share their thoughts and viewpoints on a single topic using the Periscope app?
  • It was started back in the Spring of 2014 via discussion in the EduMatch (@Edu_Match) Voxer group and the first scopes happened on April 21, 2014, and it’s seen some amazing growth as well as a bit of a slow down in recent times.
  • I was lucky enough to be a part of the initial 5 scopers who decided to get this crazy idea started, along with Valerie Lews (@iamVLewis), Dr. Sarah Thomas (@SarahDaTeechur), Knikole Taylor (@Knikole), and Dr. Toutoule Ntoya (@ToutouleNtoya)
  • Every 3rd Thursday of the month
  • A topic is discussed in the  #PassTheScopeEDUVoxer chat, which any educator can ask to join
  • Anyone can sign up for a chance to scope on the #PassTheScopeEDU spreadsheet

This is one of the most amazing communities I have been privileged to be a part of and I know you can also gain from watching the scopes and joining in on the discussions. For more information, search on Twitter or Periscope for  #PassTheScopeEDU or visit their website at www.PassTheScopeEDU.com.
