#EdTech Thought

Social Media Overwhelm

Consider the following questions if you feel that social media has ever or is currently overwhelming.

  • Do you really want to use social media?
  • How much time are you spending on social media?
  • When do you turn to social media?
  • What part of your social media use is not working for you?
  • Do you need to take a break?
  • How do you want to use social media?

#EdTech Recommendation

Headliner

Headliner is built for podcasters, marketers, musicians, publishers, radio stations & anyone who is ready to ditch their pricey video editor subscription.

Headliner is a free web-based video editor designed for making videos for social media, but the editor could be used for making videos for any purpose.

Richard Byrne recently wrote about Headliner and said, “Headliner could be a great video creation tool for high school students to use to make short documentary-style videos. While it is relatively easy to use, making a short documentary in Headliner would require a good bit of advanced planning and patience in editing images, video clips, text, and audio into one polished final product.”
