Welcome to Ed Tech Tips!

hello friend

Welcome!

Thanks for dropping by! The intention of this blog is to create a space for me to model the shift from content consumer to content creator. As a former high school teacher and current teacher educator, I am well aware of the demands placed on teachers. I also know that teachers don't get much training on how to effectively integrate technology through their teacher preparation program.

There are a plethora of tech tools at our disposal. Limited exposure or general lack of time to explore are additional reasons teachers don't use technology. Can a blog remedy this in some way? I'm going to try! My goal with this blog is to create and share useful tips and tutorials that you can add to your teacher toolkit.

My initial goal is to share two blog posts each week. "Ed Tech Tips" (a revision and extension of my previous Ed Tech Info Project) will be a standardized blog post on Tuesdays of each week. The format and day of publication for my second blog post each week will be random. So make sure you subscribe to get updates. 

Ed Tech Tips
These posts will aim to provide a succinct overview of one #EdTech tool per week. This information will be distilled down into a one-page handout with the following information: 
  • Tool name
  • Cost
  • Description
  • Blurb
  • Applications
    • Use-case example
  • Step-by-Step
  • Additional resources
Additionally, I plan to provide short and sweet video tutorials for each tech tool covered in the near future. These will be organized on YouTube for easy access. You can subscribe to my YouTube channel here.

Again, I sincerely appreciate you stopping by my blog. Feel free to connect with me on Twitter (@opmccubbins).
