The hottest new app to hit the collaboration scene is Voxer. Voxer is a new social media platform that incorporates text, pictures, and voice. Voxer describes itself as a “walkie-talkie” app. For those of us “old school” people, we quickly understand that notion. It changes collaboration when you can hear the tone and inflection in a person’s voice.
The uses for this app are endless. From connecting friends to discuss an upcoming event, to providing a collaborative spot for people from around the world to meet and discuss a topic, Voxer is quickly becoming a go-to app.
Oh, yes. There is a Voxer Educators list. (Here)
