Video is a powerful teacher. It’s how our brans are wired to learn. In the classroom they can be used to teach both large and small concepts, or simply set to run as students are coming into the classroom, drawing their attention, and arming them for the beginning of the lesson — with questions.
The World Wide Web is rich with video content, perhaps best evidenced by the fact that YouTube, a totally user contributed content base, is now the largest web site in the world and the second most used search engine.
This blog will feature one of these videos each day, tagged by discipline, for use by teachers and learners. You can follow the blog by day or subscribe to specific disciplines.
This blog is curated by Martin Warlick, a student of film and other forms of motion literature.
