How I Use It
To supplement lessons as well as heighten students' engagement in a topic. I plan to use this site more often this upcoming year, to incorporate more interest in the common core standards. I'm going to see what videos may be available that will enhance students' learning of Language Arts fields, especially grammar.
My Take
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.
