I just discovered Teacher Tube, the You Tube of Teachers. Wow! According to the site, the goal of Teacher Tube is to provide an online community for sharing instructional videos.
After beta testing for almost two months, TeacherTube officially launched on March 6, 2007. Our goal is to provide an online community for sharing instructional videos. We seek to fill a need for a more educationally focused, safe venue for teachers, schools, and home learners. It is a site to provide anytime, anywhere professional development with teachers teaching teachers. As well, it is a site where teachers can post videos designed for students to view in order to learn a concept or skill.
TeacherTube divides its videos into channels, such as Elementary, Writing, and Professional Development. The site is easy to navigate, and fun to search. Since we have had so much discussion and questions related to fluency on Literacy is Priceless, I found a great video that demonstrates a Kindergarten class using a drama center to practice Fluency. -Melissa
