However, one of the complaints is the variety of the content found there. Much of it is for secondary and higher ed, leaving the elementary folks with out a solution.
I have known about WatchKnowLearn for a while now. While it looks like your typical video site, it isn't. It's a powerful tool for you to use in your classroom.
When you first visit the site you will see several things:
- The Featured Videos Section-This is an ever changing list of the best content found on the site
- The Most Recently Posted Section
- The Highest Rated Section
- The Most Viewed Section
While all of those are great places to start, most folks are going to want to drill down to their subject area. There is a place to do that on the left.
You can see that in many of the content areas there are over 1000 videos and in the major core areas the numbers top 4000. And just look at the variety of content there! When you go into and area you get topics and sub topics and in some cases sub sub subtopics.
Sure, you can drill down. Sure you can search. But maybe you just want to search by the age of your students. You can do that too.
Take the slider from either side until you have the desired age range. Put in your topic and off you go. Wanna search more than just WatchKnowLearn? Use the drop down to search School Tube or Teacher Tube also.
All of the videos are reviewed by teachers and the folks at the site for their quality and applicability to the content area and age level. The comments are also a great place to learn how other educators are using the videos in the classroom.
WatchKnowLearn is a wonderful addition to your arsenal of video sites. You can get lost in all the great content. So head over there and definitely check it out!
