The Periodic Table of Videos – Thanks to Cali Lewis over at GeekBrief.TV for sharing this cool site. What makes this periodic table great is that there are short videos describing each element and/or showing an experiment using the element.
National Geographic: Wildlife Filmmaker – “Make a custom nature film with animal clips, sounds, and more. Then share your masterpiece with friends.”
ThinkQuest: Math Movies: Math for Everyone – “Have you ever wondered how mathematics is actually applied in everyday life? Do you like games and movies? Are you looking for ideas for your science project? … Are you a teacher looking for lesson plans and fresh teaching idea? Welcome to Math Movies.”
Tony Vincent over at the Learning in Hand blog posted the following: “How to Cheat” – he provides examples of YouTube videos that show students methods on how to cheat. As Tony says, we don’t want our kids to see these videos, but they are out there nonetheless. As teachers, we need to be familiar with them, too, so we can prevent the use of them in our classrooms.
Another great post by Tony Vincents is “Video Podcasts Free Up Class Time” – “… video podcasts to remove lecture from class. Viewing podcasts made by teachers is given as homework so teachers and students can focus on hands-on activities and direct problem solving during class time. For students without Internet, they can copy episodes to a flash drive. Those without computers can take home DVDs to play on their televisions.”
