Top 10 Educational Videos of 2011 Another year is coming to a close. And with the New Year approaching, it’s a great time to reflect on topics and issues that impacted our learning in 2011. I traveled all over the country again in 2011 speaking to K-12 educators on the power that video can have on student learning. I have personally witnessed the amazing influence video has had on my own students’ learning during my past nine years in education. 2011 was no exception in the diverse and powerful videos that some of our world leaders, or future world leaders, created. Therefore, I have decided to list the top 10 educational videos I watched this past year. Now, I will concede that there may be better videos in our global stratosphere. 10.

6 Free Professional Development Web Tools Worth Trying Professional development isn’t as easy as it used to be. Although districts often have days set aside for professional development or school improvement, these are not enough to meet the requirements for certificate renewal, nor are they enough to provide teachers with the opportunities they need to excel. Not to mention that the topics and agendas of these PD days are generally not self-selected, but rather assigned by administrators whose priorities may be very different from those of the teachers attending. It used to be that individual opportunities existed for teachers to engage in PD of their choosing. This decrease in funding and opportunities comes at the worst possible time. We can’t just sit back and wait for our administrators to provide solutions – we may be waiting for a very, very long time. Take your professional development into your own hands. Not sure where to start? Teachers First – completely free online PD on just about any topic you can think of.
