If you are an avid user of videos to support instruction in your classroom, Amy has posted about very useful and effective video tools for teachers. Are you tired of trying to find videos that you have used in the past and wish that they could be in one place? This, and other resources, are detailed in her post here on Five Minute Film Festival:
It’s no secret that I am a passionate advocate for using video in the classroom. When used well, videos can help students make connections to people and ideas beyond their usual frame of reference. That’s why I’ve been really excited to see a wave of new (and mostly free or low-cost!) tech tools recently that enable teachers to take favorite clips and make them more valuable for educational use. Whether you use videos to flip your classroom or you just appreciate the power of video to engage kids, maybe one of the tools in my playlist below will help you go deeper in 2014.

Try them out and let me know how you like them.
