5 EdTech Tools in 5 Minutes: Episode 8

Okay… so it’s less than six minutes!  During June and July (and almost August), I put the 5 in 5 screencasts on hold.  Well, it’s that time of year again.

By no means are these five minute episodes a comprehensive overview of the tools, but it should be enough to let you know what the tool is, what it can do, and if it’s worth your time looking into and learning more about. I’m all about helping teachers save time where they can!

5_in_5This episode features the following tools:

  1. ThingLink
  2. NearPod
  3. Remind
  4. Print Friendly
  5. One-Click Timer

5 Edtech Tools in 5 Minutes: Episode 5

With our school-wide Digital Citizenship Day, February was a little crazy and I never got around to making a 5 in 5 episode for February. Now that things have calmed down, I can resume making the monthly 5 in 5 screencasts, which highlight 5 edtech tools teachers can use with students in 5 minutes (okay you caught me-less than six minutes!). By no means are these five minute episodes a comprehensive overview of the tools, but it should be enough to let you know what the tool is, what it can do, and if it’s worth your time looking into and learning more about.

5_in_5This episode features the following tools:

  1. Big Huge Labs
  2. Kahoot!
  3. Pinterest
  4. Visuwords
  5. Piktochart

5 Edtech Tools in 5 Minutes: Episode 4

In October I started these monthly 5 in 5 episodes to help teachers quickly learn about available tech and web tools they could use in their classrooms.  By no means are these five minute episodes a comprehensive overview of the tools, but it should be enough to let you know what the tool is, what it can do, and if it’s worth your time looking into and learning more about.

5_in_5This episode features the following tools:

  1. TodaysMeet
  2. Cue Prompter
  3. WordPress
  4. Infuse Learning
  5. Storify

5 Edtech Tools in 5 Minutes

You don’t know what you don’t know, right? And there are SO many educational technology tools out there, with new ones arriving and leaving us everyday, that it’s hard to keep up.

5_in_5That’s why I started these monthly 5 in 5 episodes that highlight five edtech tools in five minutes (okay, you caught me-under six minutes).  You may not have the time to go searching for a specific tool for hours and then spend a few more hours learning how to use the tool.  But surely you have five minutes to learn about five different tools each month!

Obviously, you won’t find out everything you need to know about a tool in one minute.  At least this is a starting point.  You’ll be able to judge if the tool is worth your time and get an idea if it has a place in your classroom based on your needs.

So, if you’ve got 15 minutes now, get caught up on the first three episodes.  For the videos, the Prezis, Diigo links to all the sites featured in the episodes and more, visit my website. If you don’t want to miss another episode, subscribe to the iTunes podcast channel here.
