How School Leaders are Collaborating Over Voxer

Voxer supporter and Elementary Principal, Adam Welcome has been using Voxer to communicate and collaborate with other educators from all over the country as part of the School Admin Virtual Mentor Program (#SAVMP).

Through exchanges over Voxer, Twitter and email, the program is aimed at sharing ideas and perspectives to help others learn and grow as school leaders. The educators who are involved use Voxer to connect with teams and mentors, and to broaden their Personal Learning Network.

In a recent blog post, Adam gathered comments from other #SAVMP educators on how Voxer has helped them grow as educators, here are some below!
