Bringing multimedia into the classroom is a great way to engage students in learning. Supplementing lessons, opening up new interests, and offering inspiration, online videos make for an incredible teaching tool. In 2010, we covered our favorite 100 video sites for educators, and we’ve now updated our list for 2012 with more than 100 resources and more than 25 brand new entries. Read on, and you’ll be able to check out the very best sources for educational videos on the web. Educational Video Collections Specifically designed for education, these collections make it easy to find video learning resources. The 100 Best Video Sites For Educators
Free Educational Movies - The KidsKnowIt Network - Educational Websites For Kids Our Free Educational Movies bring your student on a fun and interactive journey through the world around us. Each movie begins by introducing students to the topics that they will be learning about, and ends with an online quiz. In order to successfully complete each online video, your student must watch, and then successfully answer the quiz questions with 80% or higher accuracy. Students who do not obtain 80% comprehension will be instructed to watch the movie a second time, and then again try to answer the quiz questions.
The Flipped Classroom is not...
Introduction to Our Flipped Classroom
I finally decided to do something that I been putting off for too long - finishing my scavenger hunt videos (I only had three left to record, and it took me less than 5 minutes - shesh) and adding the last 8 mini-videos to my MentorMob playlist. So I did it today! I decided to do an edmodo scavenger hunt because some of my students will be familiar with edmodo (because I had them last year and we used it) and some of my students have most likely never heard of it (Some of my students last year did talk about it to students who weren't in my class).

Wikis These four friends are going on a camping trip. They need to bring the right supplies because they're backpacking. The group needs to plan and plan well, so coordination is key. They're all computer users, so they start planning with an email.
You remember what it was like in school. IT WAS BORING! You sat in class, memorized as much as you could and tried to pass a test at the end. Project Based Learning
Unplugged This past week I had a chance to unplug and disconnect. My college-aged son, Caleb, and I had a chance to go on a canoeing trip along the Wisconsin River for four days. Flipped Learning | Turning Learning on Its Head!
In my opinion, the most rewarding aspect of delaying direct instruction (in the case of flipteaching, delaying the delivery of the video) is observing students construct, and in many instances, even master content, before I take an active instructional role. This week I introduced a unit on Electrochemistry, often the final unit in an AP Chemistry class. The outcome(s) was straight forward: students will be able to draw a diagram of an electrochemical cell given two different metals and calculate the voltage at standard and non-standard conditions. Before the week began, I planned out our standard Explore-Flip-Apply learning cycle, that began with a lab activity where students, with minimal guidance, worked in teams to construct an electrochemical cell with the highest voltage (Explore).

Watching #flipclass videos: F.I.T.C.H. I made a short video for next year's students on how to get the most out of a "Flip Class" video. For their summer packet this year, they are going to be doing some "flip class-y" things... rather than just being given a packet of review problems to do, they are going to be given that packet, have videos to go along with each lesson, and then submit a reflection similar to a WSQ online. I'm hoping this will help ease my students in to next year's class. We will have six sections of Math Analysis in the fall, split between me and another teacher. The other teacher is considering doing some aspects of the flipped class next year, but not fully like I am doing. Regardless, we hope that this will prepare them for the new type of learning and set the stage for the student reflection and responsibility that will be required in a flipped classroom.
