The first will be through Instagram. This social media platform, quickly becoming one of the most popular, allows users to post pictures and short videos. Videos can only be 15 seconds in length and so through this platform I will be creating some Time Saving Tech Tips. It won't be easy as I found out creating the first last night. As many of you know I am a massive fan of constrained writing so will relish the challenge. These videos will be quick and easy guides to help teachers save time and utilise technology to its potential in the classroom!
Here was the first video -
The next tool I tried for the first time yesterday was Facebook Live Video! This is a fantastic way for me to broadcast a live demonstration or discussion and see comments and questions in real time! I love the potential with this, being able to help teachers and answer questions wherever they are in the world! I often get requests from teachers who are unable to attend course or conferences and so this will be a way in which I can share ideas which can be accessed by everyone! Here was the first live broadcast from yesterday -
First Live Video!
