Video Sharing as a Classroom Tool.

Check out the video page of this weblog (Understanding the New Web).  This is a space I’ve created to collect videos that I’ve used, or will likely view with my classes.  I teach Visual Art, Computer Science, English, and some other computer couses like Information Processing.  Most of the videos in this space are for my computer courses.  Video sharing sites like You-Tube and Teacher-Tube have become great resources for educators.  Many of these video clips are short, so they can be viewed in a class and there is still plenty of time for good discussions and other activities.  Napoleon Bonaparte once said that a picture is worth a thousand words.  Often, a good video can be worth much more.   What do you think?

  1. Hi Ryan,
    This is mine and my students favourite video site. When you link to the videos there will often be podcasts and other information on the subject. They are from Nova on PBS.

  2. Hi Ryan
    The PBS videos “growing up on line” are great. You have gathered some great resources. Well done!
