It's Okay To Be Smart: I'm thinking of scheduling a Google Hangout Q&A session . . .

My YouTube channel has been going strong for a few months now and I’d like to know what you guys think of it all and if there’s anything you’d like to see in a future episode. Plus you guys are always sending me such great questions here on the blog and on Twitter, this would give me a chance…

Clip Choose -  enables you to create a quick poll based around two or more YouTube video clips.

Then share the poll online and see which answer is most popular.
Use this as a hook to get students involved in an upcoming lesson.
This could also be a great lead-in for a debate or writing prompt.
Quick, simple, and fun.

YouTube Launches New Site for Teachers

#elemchat #spedchat #youtube4teachers

I hope #CPS unblocks YouTube for Teachers. So much great content is being created by educators and it would be awesome if we could use it in the classroom.

 world-shaker:

Teachers who love YouTube will be interested to know that today YouTube have launched a channel specifically aimed at teachers : http://www.youtube.com/teachers.

It contains guides on how to use YouTube in the classroom, as well as curated video playlists that will be suitable for teachers to use.

You can also sign up to the YouTube Teachers Community and receive regular updates from the YouTube team, including tips and tricks for incorporating YouTube in your classroom, best practices from other teachers, and great new content uploaded on YouTube.

Oh, and a really interesting kicker:

According to Mind Shift, the new teachers site is part one of two big YouTube projects for teachers. In the next couple of weeks, a bigger announcement will be made about huge changes that will address many of the concerns teachers have had about using YouTube videos in the classroom.

YouTube Videos Blocked at Your School?DownloadTube.org has created an easy way to get YouTube videos when your school has blocked the site. Just enter the URL for the blocked video and check what you’d like to convert the video to, including Windows, (.mpg) Macs, (.mov) Flash, (.flv) or iPone/iPod. (.mp4) I tried it and it works very well, but the only downside id the watermark (see above logo) remains on the upper left side of the screen throughout the video.

Free Technology for Teachers: New Google Docs Community Offers How-to Videos

I think this is what I have been looking for.  I don’t know anyone who uses Google Docs at my school and I know there are tons of things I could do with it…I just don’t know what they are.  I will be checking out these tutorials soon.  You can too!

Google Docs Community

Thanks Richard for this find.
