How I Use It
School tube is a website that has videos that can enhance many lessons. I particularly used this site to access school house rocks videos that help introduce topics in an extremely elementary way. The site navigates much like the popular youtube.com site. The students enjoyed the school house rocks how a bill becomes a law video and were able to recite most of it after only viewing it once. The site is easy to pull up and use, but more in depth videos are sometimes hard to find on the site.
My Take
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.
