Videos for Teachers

Posted by


  • Studio 4 Learning Great collection of videos for teachers of all subjects.  Use the videos to help teach a skill or concept to your class, or upload and share your own video.
  • Teacher Tube A community of teachers sharing all things related to education.  Lots of categories.  Like YouTube–but for teachers.
  • Global Solutions Great videos and flash presentations to inspire class discussions about topics related to social responsibility.
  • The Eight Irresistible Principles of Fun–Inspirational presentation.
  • 5 Big Questions — Inspirational reflections
  • The Great Work Movie — Inspirational reflections (groovy).
  • Ken Robinson’s creativity TED Talk — Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity.  (awesome, funny, powerful)
  • NeoK12 is a site devoted to collecting and organizing videos into categories based on discipline.  A good collection and index.  Categories include (but are not limited to): Physical Science, Life Science, Health, Earth and Space, Social Studies, English, and Human Body.  They describe their site with this subhead: Educational videos and lessons for K-12 kids.
  • Jill Bolte Taylor’s Stroke of Insight — Jill Bolte Taylor got a research opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: She had a massive stroke, and watched as her brain functions — motion, speech, self-awareness — shut down one by one. An astonishing story.  (moving, amazing, incredible)
  • Mathlew Needleman has created a great resource and blog (and following) at Creating Lifelong Learners: digital literacy, higher level thinking, closing the digital divide.  He writes intelligently about all things teaching (from managing parent conferences to navigating social networks), but does a particularly great job tutoring and managing a community of teachers using video to teach critical thinking skills.  This guy’s been busy for quite awhile and has uploaded a lot of valuable stuff for teachers (every one of those links above is to a different resource).  Here is a good video example of what he’s all about:
