WHAT IS VOXER?  The mobile phone app (Apple/Android) is a free Walkie Talkie app for smartphones. It is both a live "push-to-talk" system and a voice messaging system for asynchronous conversations and sharing of voice clips, text and pictures.

HOW ARE EDUCATORS USING IT? Create, discuss and share ideas/events using the #eduvoxers hashtag. Find opportunities to leverage Voxer in education with the following resources:

  • Many education chats, conferences and leadership teams now use a Voxer group to collaborate asynchronously from day to day. Check out this great resource gDOC which features a growing number of Voxer groups for you to join. 
  • After signing up, add your name and location to this master #eduvoxers gDOC directory containing just under 1000 educators from around the world. Special thanks to Theresa Stager (@principalstager) for putting this resource together.
