Loading... - Free online whiteboard for teachers and classrooms Five more YouTube channels to use with curious students In this post, I am sharing 5 more YouTube channels you can share with your curious students. You might find them appropriate for older and more mature teenagers as well. The only prerequisite is for both you and your students to be curious, open-minded and eager to learn new things about the world. Why do I use videos with my students? I use videos for a number of reasons. What I also often do is ask my students to watch a certain video at home and either treat is as homework (comes with some exercises) or as a way for them to prepare for the next lesson where the video’s content and language will be relevant (comes with a set of instructions and points to pay attention to). The YouTube channels below feature videos that I have already used with both adult and teenage students. #1 Sprouts Authors behind Sprouts make animated videos on education, learning, science, and creative and critical thinking. My pick: The Pygmalion effect #2 Old Time TV My pick: Good Eating Habits #3 DW Documentary

Virtual Dice & Coin Flip Game-Based Learning Is Changing How We Teach. Here's Why. Dan White, the co-founder and CEO of Filament Games, an educational video game developer based in Madison, WI, knows from personal experience that kids can get a lot more out of video games than entertainment, sharpened reflexes and enviable manual dexterity. Back in the '90s he was a devotee of Civilization, a game where players run an empire from the dawn of time to the Space Age. “Along that timeline you make all sorts of interesting strategic decisions about your empire,” says White. “Now I run a 40-person ‘empire’ at Filament. I have to do a lot of the same strategic thinking that I enjoyed doing in that game.” EdSurge recently caught up with White to talk about how game-based learning (GBL) can help children develop the skills that will be essential in their future jobs, and how Minecraft, specifically, has influenced classroom education and the learning game industry. EdSurge: First things first. What do these skills look like within an actual game? Absolutely.
