FREEBEE FRIDAY: Instant Videos

Watchknow One of the big disappointments of today’s digital technology has nothing to do with what the equipment is capable of but what teachers and students can do with them. This is particularly the case when it comes to classroom videos with a dearth of quality mini-movies that can help teach a lesson or illustrate a concept.Watchknow.org is a great resource for teachers with 11,000 videos in 2,000 categories available; its goal is 50,000 videos by next year. Developed by Larry Sanger, co-founder of Wikipedia, Watchknow is for pre-schoolers to high-schoolers with tons of vids from National Geographic, YouTube and Google.
