We've been talking about doing exactly that for over a year now in the Central Region but have not made much progress in making it happen.  Is anybody out there already doing it?  Skip the decaf.

It would be most inventive to find a way to share those resources so every school didn’t have to reinvent the video – so to speak. Fire up those collaboration minds and tools. How about a statewide tech support video blog ? All comes down to time in the end. Never know, such and animal may already exist out there. I need more coffee.

I totally agree.   We need to explore such tools that will help us take some pressure off the tech support folks, especially in the area of routine procedures.   I still remember Kay's striking example of using video with an IEP student and witnessing a teacher in Eric Hall's computer lab at Crossett Brook looking up a video on the network on how to use a digital camera.   Very good stuff.

Reading Tommie's ratio of support staff to clients makes me think 
perhaps we ought to clone our support people to improve the ratio 
using video ipods showing how support people check that everything is 
plugged in etc.
