Back-to-School (Free) Training on Tech Tools

03 Sep

tech webinarsToday, we at Ask a Tech Teacher launch our list of Great Training for teachers. These are videos to show you how to use some of the apps, websites, widgets and tools mentioned on the Ask a Tech Teacher site, used in your technology curriculum, and that you really should know how to use (so you can teach students and other teachers). This is the brainchild of David Kinane (click for more of his brilliance), one of the Ask a Tech Teacher crew. He not only came up with the idea, but created most of them (well, all so far, but I have plans to help. I promise!).

If you haven’t met David, here’s a bit about him (from his website):

David has been Head of IT at a secondary girls school in the UK. He has been Head of IT at a large Auckland Intermediate School as well as Director of IT at a large Auckland primary school. David also spent a period of time working for Team Solutions at the University of Auckland, where he was the Secondary Schools Elearning Facilitator. David has presented on elearning at conferences in Europe, Australia and all over New Zealand and has been interviewed twice by EdTalks. David is a regular contributor to Interface Magazine and has written articles for Edudemic Magazine.

These videos are designed for educators who:

  • use the SL tech curriculum
  • teach tech
  • teach a grade-level class and want to integrate tech into it
  • are an integration specialist, supposed to know ‘everything about anything tech’
  • would like to help students meet the Common Core tech requirements

We have:

  • Animoto
  • Audacity
  • Audioboo
  • Bitsboard
  • Edcanvas
  • Evernote
  • Excel
  • Explain Everything
  • Google Storybuilder
  • Haiku Deck
  • Mind42
  • Photobabble
  • Puppet Pals

Here’s an example of David’s glorious tutorials:
