Great source for accessing videos relevant to classroom material

It is a more secure or monitored site than youtube.

Videos that can enhance student learning.

School tube can be used to enhance many lessons in the classroom. I like the fact that the site is made for teachers to enhance lessons with technology and videos. Students are more apt to view a video than listen to a teacher lecture the lesson. School tube is meant to engage students in a meaningful way. I have found that sometimes it is more difficult to find more meaningful videos on this site. I used these videos to introduce a lesson. If I am trying to enhance a lesson to create a deeper understanding of a concept, I will use Ted Ed or YouTube.

Because these videos are more closely screened and sifted through, there are limited videos available. That is both good and bad. Students don't care where the video comes from; just that it's a video. Used mostly for Social Studies but switching subject areas so I hope ot be able to provide a better analysis in the future.
