Online Video

Online videos sites can be a great source of inspiration and support to add value to learning. Use them to explain, clarify, model concepts, communicate, promote and share learning with an audience. Access video collection online through my links. I have categorised these to make it a little easier to browse and locate.
Also this handy little widget below is a great way to add your favourite video collections to your blog or wiki space. If you are use Blogger you will also see that a new tool allows you to upload video directly into your blog post without having to host it on another site like Teacher Tube.


Quickly find the best homework help, revision websites and educational sites for use in the classroom. Includes its own search function or browse by subject and age group.
This is a UK based site and brings together many online resources in one place. It is easy to navigate and includes some favourites that I know teachers have already found valuable. Also includes some great Interactive White Board resources that can be utilised just as easily through a data projector only.
