"I'd learn more about using technology if I just had the time."
How many times have you heard - or maybe said - that phrase above? Do you have 5 minutes? 5 minutes may not be all the time you need to completely become proficient in using a web 2.0 tool, but it is enough time to get a good grasp on what that tool is, and how it might be something useful for your classroom or personal use.
"Learn it in 5 is a powerful library of how-to videos, produced by technology teachers, for the purpose of helping teachers and students create classroom strategies for today's 21st century's digital classroom. These step-by-step how-to videos walk teachers through Web 2.0 technology, demonstrating how to use Web 2.0 applications like blogs, social networks, podcasts, interactive videos, wikis, slidesharing and much more." (Description taken from the Learn it in 5 website.)
Here's a sampling of the how-to videos available on the site -
There are several other how-to's on the site, as well as a blog on Digital Classroom Strategies. This looks like a good site that is worth your time - especially if you only have 5 minutes of it to spare. :-)
