Educational Uses

The class can add their own stories and contribute to a growing layer of living history, anecdote, entertainment, and information that spans the world.

Amid the countless digital ways we now record everything in our lives, Broadcastr showed me how fun it is to sit back and listen to voices?from around the globe. Oral histories aren’t dead, they just have a new home on the web.

It's the perfect way to share field trip stories.

Go give it a listen; you too might hear something interesting just around the corner or around the world.

The exploration aspect – searching the world from random stories – is one of the most enjoyable social experiences I’ve ever heard.?
