Fab Find Friday: Voxer (Expand Your PLN)

No comments
Our school district and fellow PLN educators have recently discovered the great (and FREE) app, Voxer.  This simple-to-use messaging app is great for campus staff's to utilize in an educational setting.  Not only can you use it as a great walkie talkie to message other people, but you can also add text, pictures, videos, gifs, and more.

From the Voxer website:
"Voxer makes it simple for friends, family and colleagues to talk from anywhere in the world, whenever it's convenient." 
"Communicate in the fastest, and most efficient manner there is -
Instant Voice."

Currently, I use Voxer on both my Android smartphone and laptop computer.  It's so incredibly easy to communicate with fellow educators using the features that come with the free version.  We use it like a chat room (or Twitter chat) by asking questions and answering each other.  We provide instructional and leadership ideas to each other. 
I also use it during the day to contact other educators in my district.  The sound effect is really cool!  Like an old-school walkie talkie.  Much easier to have a fast conversation and get immediate feedback from the person I'm trying to reach.  I don't have to take the time to write it all out or deal with a crummy speech-to-text function.   

We've had and/or seen educators use Voxer for:

  • Professional Development
  • Book Studies
  • Instant and Speedy Communication with Staff
  • PLN Groups
  • Educational Chat Rooms
  • ETC....
