Coming off of our 2013 recap post, what really struck me was the number of videos that schools are posting — over 31,000 uploaded. Got us thinking. Wouldn’t it be cool to pull together a list of educational video resources to help teachers build on their momentum? We thought so and spent time curating some of our favorite resources (plus sharing a tip on how to take full advantage of Topic page layouts).

Do us a favor and help us continue to build out this list by leaving a comment below. We’d love to see your favorite video resources added to the list. 1.

Students Map Real-World Issues with (Free) Geospatial Tools. Imagine being an emergency responder in a small town that hasn't mapped its fire hydrants, labeled rural roads with street signs, or identified evacuation points in the event of natural disaster. Now imagine being part of a high school team that addresses those issues by thinking critically and using sophisticated geospatial tools to communicate findings. Until recently, only a small number of schools have had access to the high-powered geographical information system (GIS) software that enables detailed, layered mapping and analysis of data.

Thanks to a recent $1 billion pledge from software developer Esri, free access to cloud-based mapping software is coming to 100,000 K-12 schools across the country. The donation of ArcGIS Online, the same software that governments and businesses use, has been pledged through ConnectED, a White House initiative to improve education in the STEM fields.
