I was reading one of David Warlick's posts this week and came across iCue. It's a learning environment built around NBC news videos. Students can view videos, play games and converse with other students on topics related to US History, US government, and English language/composition.
The site uses Video Cue Cards. Select a card, watch the video, tag the card, color code the card and add the card to your stack. Students can setup a Friends Network and join Discussion Forums. iCue provides a new and exciting way for students to interact with history and politics. iCue was developed by research from MIT. Take the tour and see what you think about iCue.
I think US History and US government teachers would like this site as another way to get high school students motivated to learn. See what you think.
