Great tutorial site!

I don’t know about you, but (especially) when it comes to technology, I learn best by watching someone else use a tool, and then trying it myself.  I have learned a lot from UK tech and ELL guru Russell Stannard at his site.  Full of teacher-training videos done as screencasts using Camtasia software, Russell walks you through a web tool and shares how you might use it with students.

I’ve learned the ins and outs of Glogster, Voki, Twitter, and mybrainshark from Russell’s videos, to name a few.  It’s easy to search his site, and once you’re “in” one of his trainings it’s easy to go back and see/hear one part again by clicking on the slides in the sidebar.

What’s your favorite way to explore a new tool?  What’s your favorite new tool?  Please share!
