Do You Have Three Minutes To Learn Something New?

The post below is actually a copy of a weekly e-mail that I send to our staff to promote our Burlington Public Schools Blog which shares the great work going on across our school district. I also try to give a quick technology tip/resource that I think would be useful. It is the 16th post in the series.

Do You Have Three Minutes To Spare?

I know how thin educators are stretched in regards to their free time. However, I also know there some great tools out there that can be integrated with very little background knowledge. Thankfully, Craig Badura has started his "Learn it 3 With Me" Series to help busy educators learn about some of these resources. His first three-minute video (embedded below) highlights Kahoot, a classroom response game that students love. Some BPS Staff are already using Kahoot, so take three minutes and join them.
