Tool #8: I'm Just a Video. Yes, I'm Only a Video...

Videos have been in the classroom for many years. The only difference is that teachers have thousands of videos readily available for use in the classroom through websites such as YouTube and Hulu and now there is no need for teachers to have the physical video/dvd to show in the classroom as long as they have a computer. Having thousands of these videos available is an extremely helpful tool for teachers because it greatly adds to the possibilities of teaching various content. In turn, students benefit because they are engaged in their own learning, their interest in learning reaches maximum levels and they retain more information.

The first video I found can be located on TeacherTube and it is called Unpack Your Adjectives originally aired on School House Rock! I know I learned so much growing up from watching these videos.

The second video came from YouTube and it might help students learn the number twelve. It is embedded at the bottom of my blog.

  1. There are so many videos out there for different topics. It can be difficult to pick the right one. I agree with you in that videos can help students retain the lesson being taught.
