Periscope Preview: Virginia Homeschool High School Symposium

Have you tried Periscope? It’s another social media app — this one broadcasts live video, which can also be archived at Katch.Me. I’ve given it a couple of tries today.

First I “Periscoped” an overview of Engaged Homeschooling philosophy, but that was not such a successful broadcast because I was apparently too far from the router, causing sync problems with audio and video. Once someone suggested this may have been the problem, I tried Periscoping from a different room in the house to see if I got better results.

That second Periscope broadcast did work out better technically (though really, quality has a lot of room for development, even though the whole concept is something broadcasters couldn’t have dreamed of back in the day) — and it gave me a chance to explain a little more about the Virginia Homeschool High School Symposium.

If you’d like to hear what the Symposium is all about — or you’d like to get a glimpse of how Periscope works for a new user, watch my video on the Virginia Homeschool High School Symposium.
