How do I participate in Voxer discussions?
Building on the success of EdCampVoxer in December 2015, we’ve added a Voxer channel for the 2016-17 K12Online conference! Think of Voxer like a group walkie-talkie with optional group text messaging. To get started:
- Download and install the Voxer app on your Smartphone and/or tablet (for iOS or Android)
- Sign up to create a FREE Voxer account using your name and email address. (You do NOT need a Pro/paid account to participate in our conference with Voxer.)
- Use this link to join our #k12onlineconf Voxer channel.
- Listen to and read comments posted by others in our channel.
- Briefly introduce yourself with an audio comment: Who are you, what is your educational role, and how did you learn about the K12 Online Conference?
- Try to keep audio comments no longer than 1-2 minutes each. Voxer technically supports audio comments up to 15 minutes long, but to keep the conversation going in our group we recommend keeping audio comments shorter.
- Interact and engage with others about our conference presentations and themes on Voxer.
- Have fun!
