Coming Soon: "Learn It in 3 with Me"

This is an accountability post.  I figure that if I blog about the crazy idea that has been floating around in my head since August,  I'm gonna have to make it happen.  So, here is that post.

As the lone Integration Specialist in a district of 1,200+ students and 120 teachers, there are days that I feel as though I am not meeting the needs of all of those people.  No, I'm not looking for sympathy. I'm looking for a better way to meet the EdTech needs of these people.  A valuable resource.  A venue where my students and teachers can come to (quickly) learn something on their own time.  

I tend to talk too fast.  For those of you that know me or have seen me present, you will agree.  So I came up with the idea of creating some tutorials.  Needing a catchy title, I came up with "Learn It in 3 with Me." 

I'm planning on creating "how to" screencasts (using Screencast-O-Matic) that are three minutes or less on all sorts of "techie" related topics.  How to use Kahoot.  How to upload pictures to Google Drive.  How to create a Paper.li paper.  There will be a myriad of topics.  

I will probably create a page on this blog where I will store what I create.  I want these tutorials to be easily accessible for my students, teachers and patrons in my district. 

Well, I guess I just put a lot of pressure on myself!  Stay tuned.  First "Learn it in 3 with Me" will be published later this week. 


  1. Love the idea! I feel the same way and decided to do something similar. We call it the Hi-Tech High Five. I work with three students to develop these videos. Sometimes I will create them on my own and sometimes the students will create the focus/theme for the week. Our goal is to release a new one every week. Good luck! I look forward to seeing what you have to share.


  2. Can't wait. We'll bookmark it as a "go to" spot for sure!
