Share: Creativity Broadcasts on Periscope

The series of Ideation Process posts will continue next week. In the meantime, I want to share what I've been broadcasting on the fairly new app Periscope.

If you haven't explored Periscope yet, it is an app that allows users to broadcast via smartphone live from wherever they are. Any Periscope user can also watch broadcasts and interact with the broadcaster through live comments. It's in app-only form; you cannot participate via a web browser.

If broadcasters choose, the recorded broadcast is available for 24 hours on the app. There's also a nifty interface that will save recordings forever. Below I've embedded my most recent broadcast, "On getting out of our comfort zone." All three of the broadcasts I've recorded so far are available online here. I'm still getting used to this new platform, and my broadcasts are far from perfect, but I'm enjoying the process, and that's what counts!



The other Learn + Explore + Share broadcasts that are currently available at are "The #bigmagic of making space for joy in your life: takeaways from Liz Gilbert's book talk" and "Vision Map show & tell." If you want to catch me live on Periscope, you'll likely find me there around 2pm Central time on Thursday afternoons. I have also been posting a heads-up on Instagram and on the L+E+S facebook page.

Periscope is owned by Twitter, so both those accounts tie together automatically, and Periscope broadcast notifications get tweeted (when this function is turned on). Since Twitter limits its handles to 15 characters, my username on both Periscope and Twitter is LearnExploreShr.

If you're interested in learning more about Periscope, I'm happy to share with you what I've learned so far. Go ahead and leave questions here in the comments, or tell me what you think about Periscope or my broadcasts. I'm excited about this new way of connecting and sharing with people, and I look forward to reading your comments!
