Introducing the New Austin ISD Pop Up PL! Sessions

Howard Martin is the Technology Systems Trainer for the Technology Design Team and has been in the district longer than VH1 has been around.

Let your mind go back to the days of the old VH1 Pop Up Video series. (VH1? It started after MTV and before Youtube.) The Pop Up videos were short fun ways of learning the deeper story behind the original music video.  In a similar way, the Technology Design Team is starting a new series, Pop Up PL! which is designed to present shorter, targeted learning sessions for AISD staff.

These 30-45 minute sessions will be online for now, but will eventually be fun training sessions that Pop Up around the city. Teacher input will be important as the goal will be to present topics that teachers request and will use right away.

The first two live sessions are called, PlayPosit: Flipping Tips & Tricks!  

  1. May 6th at 1pm will be a session for elementary staff, HCP #95192
  2. May 7th at 1pm will be directed to secondary staff, HCP #95191

Go to the AISD Continuity of Learning Hub in BLEND ( to find the new home of AISD’s Pop Up PL! and all of the online meeting information.  Got a request for a short Pop Up PL! Session? Let us know on our Topic Request Form. (
