Flying Pig 30+ Alternatives to YouTube Over the last year I've done a few posts about alternatives to YouTube. This post consolidates all of those resources into one list. If you have a suggestion that should be added to this list, please leave a comment. 1,2,3. This list cannot be started and would be totally incomplete if I did not start by mentioning Teacher Tube,, and iTunes U. My blog posts on the three services are here, here, and here respectively.4. 6,7. 8,9 Vimeo and are two user generated content video sites that have gained some traction over the last year. 11. 12, 13. 15, 16, 17, 18. 19, 20 TED and Big Think offer intellectual discussions and presentations about a wide variety of social, political, scientific, and economic topics. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25. 26. iCue, presented by NBC News, features videos about history and current events. 27. 28. 29. 31. 32. 33. 34.

Detexify LaTeX handwritten symbol recognition Want a Mac app? Lucky you. The Mac app is finally stable enough. See how it works on Vimeo. Download the latest version here. Restriction: In addition to the LaTeX command the unlicensed version will copy a reminder to purchase a license to the clipboard when you select a symbol. You can purchase a license here: Buy Detexify for Mac If you need help contact What is this? Anyone who works with LaTeX knows how time-consuming it can be to find a symbol in symbols-a4.pdf that you just can't memorize. How do I use it? Just draw the symbol you are looking for into the square area above and look what happens! My symbol isn't found! The symbol may not be trained enough or it is not yet in the list of supported symbols. I like this. You could spare some time training Detexify. The backend server is running on Digital Ocean (referral link) so you can also reduce my hosting costs by using that referral link. Why should I donate? Hosting of detexify costs some money. No. Yes.

Documentary Films | Watch Free Documentaries Online | SnagFilms Physics Flashlets Michael Fowler See also our Applets! This is a collection of Flash animations to make learning physics easier! They were created by myself and my students Jacquie Hui Wan Ching and Heather Welch, and Michael Timmins and , in the summer of 2003. Some of these flashlets are not quite perfect yet, but we’re working on it. Pythagoras: prove Pythagoras’ Theorem fast by moving triangles around with your mouse. Eclipse of the Moon: a short movie of the Moon moving through the Earth’s shadow, and how it appears from Earth. Ptolemy's Epicycles for Inner Planet Motion: actually a simplified version, with just the basic epicycle idea illustrated. Ptolemy's Epicycles for the Outer Planets: again, just the basic epicycle idea. Earth-Mars Line of Sight in Two Models. Kepler’s Laws: construct your own planetary orbits and check Kepler’s Laws! The Inner Planets: a movie of the inner planets in orbit ... and here are the Outer Planets. Trip to Mars! Carnot Cycle: the Carnot engine in action! Chinese Version

Home Physics Flash Animations We have been increasingly using Flash animations for illustrating Physics content. This page provides access to those animations which may be of general interest. The animations will appear in a separate window. The animations are sorted by category, and the file size of each animation is included in the listing. In addition, I have prepared a small tutorial in using Flash to do Physics animations. LInks to versions of these animations in other languages, other links, and license information appear towards the bottom of this page. The Animations There are 99 animations listed below. Other Languages and Links These animations have been translated into Catalan, Spanish and Basque: En aquest enllaç podeu trobar la versió al català de les animacions Flash de Física. Many animations have been translated into Greek by Vangelis Koltsakis. Most animations have been translated into Hungarian by Sandor Nagy, Eötvös Loránd University.

Teachers TV | Free education videos and resources for professional development Physics and Flash Flash is well-known for producing spiffy animations. Not as well-known is how to use it for demonstrations in the sciences using proper mathematical equations to control the motions. Using proper Physics equations for animations is also useful for realistic games. We will create 5 different animations below. When this document was written, the current Flash program was MX 2004. The Undamped Harmonic Oscillator We will use a harmonic oscillator, such as a mass oscillating on a spring, as our example. A is the maximum amplitude of the oscillation. (pronounced omega naught) is the "natural" angular frequency of oscillation, and depends on the mass and the particular spring. t is the time. (pronounced phi) is called the "phase angle" of the oscillation, and essentially depends on what moment in time we choose to call zero. In this document we will be clever and choose the phase angle to be zero. Faking It Our undamped oscillator will have a period of 2.0 seconds. This is not good. Problem 1 Here

3 Clutter-free Ways to Display YouTube Videos I'm slowly starting to hear more instances of schools allowing teachers and students to access YouTube in their classrooms. Last week a reader contacted me for suggestions about displaying YouTube videos in her classroom without accidentally having an inappropriate "related video" show up on the screen. What follows are the three resources I recommend for displaying YouTube without the sidebar advertisements and related videos. View Pure is a simple little tool that strips way all of the distractions of related videos, comments, and promoted videos. To use View Pure just copy the link of a video into the "purifier," click purify, and your video will be displayed on a blank white background. Quietube is a handy little browser extension that removes all the clutter from YouTube allowing you to view only your selected video. makes it possible to view YouTube videos without displaying the related videos and associated comments. Here's what looks like in action. 100 Awesome Classroom Videos to Learn New Teaching Techniques With so many good teachers out there, it’s fortunate they can share their knowledge via video on the Internet. From the funny to the poignant, these glimpses into the lives of teachers and their students will keep you entertained while learning a little something as well. Whether you are a new teacher storing up tips and tricks or an experienced teacher who could just use a fresh perspective, you are sure to find something helpful among these videos. The Basics Reading, storytelling, math, and science all get coverage with these videos that show how some Teaching Storytelling in the Classroom. Myst ‘Exile’ in the Classroom. The Arts From visual arts to music to drama, these videos will offer suggestions and stimulate creativity when teaching art to your students. Footprint dancing at the Nest. Getting Physical Movement doesn’t have to be reserved just for PE class. Student Body: Classroom Exercises Make Learning Lively. Education and Technology Turning on Technology: Ferryway School.
