The Mama Tech Minute

Last week I got a request from one of my teachers to do a little movie each week showcasing ideas and tools for tech integration.  I guess she really liked the Digital Storytelling tool movie I did.  😉  So I’ve decided to embark on a Vlog project, the Mama Tech Minute.  I meet with grade level teams and we talk about what they are doing in the classroom and I try to give them ideas.  Most of the time I have to do a litle research and scour the web for ideas and tools.  I’ll be putting these ideas into this Vlog.  Wish me luck.  I’m not the best on doing anything every week, but I will try my best to keep this going.  Who knows, maybe I will get some Vlog followers.

Here is the first one and a link to my Middle School Weekly Updates.

So I’m going to use this post for the reflection on Week 3 in Course Four of COETAIL about the Present (Flipped Classrooms).  The Mama Tech Minute idea is basically the flipped classroom idea but for tech integration purposes.  It’s really hard for me to get around to everyone of my teachers to give them tips and advice.  Sending them a clip saves me so much time and it allows my teachers to watch it at the convenience.

I need to find more time to do this, more time to sit down and get all my cool app and integration ideas into a clip.

  1. Dear Laura,
    What a cool idea! I love this. I can just imagine the amount of time and effort you need to put into this, but I am sure this must be very beneficial to your teachers.
    I am in a similar role – tech integrator, and I would love to do something like this at my school – I hope you don’t mind me adapting this idea!
    A request – as this was implemented nearly a year ago, would you have any advice or tips that I could keep in mind? Would highly appreciate it!
    Thanks once again.


    1. Hi Amita, Unfortunately I haven’t really followed through with the MamaTech minute. I wish I had more time in the day. My advice would be carve out a bit of time every week to create your broadcast. I haven’t been good about doing this and so the Mama Tech minute is on hold right now. Hopefully I can get around doing some more soon.
