This presentation is designed to demonstrate to attendees that video tutorials for incorporating technology into the classroom more closely models the way that people today regularly take in information: in highly personalized, bite sized chunks designed to address the specific interests and needs of the individual. Given the variety of teacher skill level and individual experience incorporating educational technology, whole group instruction seems an outdated model that mirrors instructional practices educators have since determined ineffective for students. In order to promote widespread technology use and to promote innovation and creative, teachers need to be clearly show how to integrate technology into the curriculum, as well as given ideas they can use in their classes right away rather than having to connect the dots themselves.
