The Key to . . . The Coolest Thing Since Skype

The double blizzards two weeks ago put a cramp in my FBLA style. Not only did it completely ruin our chapter’s national FBLA week fun and festivities, but it also forced us to become even more technologically savvy. I’m a part of a trio (the only girl again this year!), that makes up our school’s Partnership with Business team. It requires a 30 page written report and speeches on the state and national levels.

Since we couldn’t get out of our driveway, let alone get to a common meeting place, we did the next best thing---we Wiggio-ed!

I’m sure thanks to Oprah, many of you know about Skype…but have you ever heard of Wiggio?? It’s basically the same concept-- video chat and IMing for free. The definite upside, however, is that you don’t have to download any software. Just join, start a group, e-mail invites for a meeting, and you instantly have access to Wiggio plus great tools like screen sharing and a whiteboard.

Which as you can see from the picture, was how we ended one of our “meetings”.



  1. I love how productive your meeting was! ;) I probably would have done that same thing at the end! : )

  2. We were all too happy to try out the whiteboard as soon as we could ;)


Comments make me smile!
