Our school district has an extensive collection of VHS educational videos that are being retired. With the incredible online video resources that exist, it was only a matter of time before we began the move to digital video resources. Nevertheless, it takes time to discover quality online video that embeds into one’s curriculum. The following are a few sites that I have found to be very useful. Of course, the best videos would be the one’s you let your students make!!!
Sixty Symbols: If you are looking for great science videos, you will find them here! The University of Nottingham has all kinds of great videos on many subjects including this language arts gem – Words of the World.
Khan Academy: Especially great Math and Science videos!
National Writing Project (YouTube site): “The National Writing Project focuses the knowledge, expertise, and leadership of our nation’s educators on sustained efforts to improve writing and learning for all learners.”
Snag Learning: “SnagLearning is dedicated to presenting high-quality documentary films as educational tools to ignite meaningful discussion within the learning community.”
