How I Use It
This is a great media resource that offers enrichment opportunities for a particular topic, though not all topics are covered that you might have in a particular curriculum. Pick and choose the videos you want to show your class, but beware some are pretty in-depth and might be over student's heads. They are short, engaging and offer interesting perspectives from people who are on the cutting-edge of discoveries.
My Take
This is a great teaching tool when used as a support or enrichment tool. I use it when needing to find content that is not blocked by the Dept. of Ed. or when a short video is appropriate to introduce/support new content.
