Evolving the SCOPE of Literacy

In the traditional classroom, we have only 50 minutes to work through content.  As all teachers know, this is never enough time.  Some schools have gone to the "flipped classroom" model, but that can take a lot of effort and time to craft and film lessons for students to watch at home.  Enter:  PERISCOPE.  A brand new app from the engineers at Twitter.  Periscope is a live broadcasting app that allows the broadcaster to capture live video and share it with a "room" full of viewers.  Some people will "periscope" their musical talents, "periscope" their travel stories around the world, but for us, "periscope" is now a verb that means - EXTEND our classrooms.
