Using Video from the Web in the Classroom

A breakout presentation by R.L. Erion
His presentation can be found at

Erion's presentation offered educators strategies for utilizing video in a way that works with district technologies policy. The "how-to" details are contained in the presentations files. Once you visit his website you can also find links to resources for educators.
Many districts do not allow use of sites like YouTube for various reasons. It is possible to download videos that may be useful for educational purposes and still show them in your classroom without exposing your students to the entire world of online videos.

A new site that operates in the same manner as YouTube, but is dedicated to more educational fare is TeacherTube -- check it out.

Teacher Tube allows you to:

-Upload and share your educational videos worldwide.
-Upload Support Files to attach your educational Activities,
Assessments, Lesson Plans, Notes, and Other file formats to your video.
-Browse original educational videos uploaded by community members.
-Find, join and create video Groups to connect with teachers, students, and schools who have similar interests.
-Customize your experience with playlists.
-Integrate TeacherTube with your website using video embeds or links provided on your video page.
