THIS WEEK'S EDITION OF TECH. NEWS
I've put together some of the very best video collections on the web for you to use in your classroom. I'm working on a sheet with descriptions of these collections for you.
Putting together collections of YouTube videos can be a good way to provide students with videos related to units of study in your classroom. The easiest way to do this is to create YouTube playlists. This video will show you how.
ViewPure is a service that allows you to watch YouTube videos without comments, ads, related videos, or any other distractions. Viewpure.com is the place to go to do this.
I often enjoy sharing portions of videos with others. Here are some effective ways of doing that. I like to use Tubechop, but would like to use Libby, Edpuzzle, Zaption, etc.
