Teacher Tube

I just watched the videos that were linked from our course page and I am really excited about watching others. While some of the videos move too slow and some move too fast, in general, you can learn a lot from them. Watching the videos gave me some new ideas on how to implement technology in the classroom. The videos also save me time so that I do not have to figure out how to do certain things, I can just learn from people that already know how to do it. This is such a comprehensive site that brings together any teacher that has an idea. It is a great way to learn from one another. These videos could also be useful for students who are assigned a project that must use technology and must be creative. I think that this site is a really good resource and I'm really glad I was told about it.

When you get good or better at some other things in relation to technology integration you can also share your knowledge to others. Posting videos like the ones you've watch on TeacherTube or other teacher websites can be of help to anyone who may learn from your experience.

I also really appreciated learning about TeacherTube! What great access to other peoples ideas and experiences. You always hear about collaboration and cooperation and teachers working together to teach, and I think this is a great example of collaboration via the Internet. It's a great use of technology in order to share with others.

When I first heard about teacher tube in class and had to watch a video, I thought it was going to be just another boring video with nothing to learn from. However, I was amazed at how much there was to learn from the program and you could do so many things. As I watched the other videos as well, I found the same thing. It is a great resource for teachers and I think that even I can find a way to use the things I learned to use in my career, even if I am not in a classroom. These videos are good things for people to watch to learn more about programs they think they already know a lot about.

I am also very excited to have been introduced to Teacher Tube. I think that sharing universal teaching approaches, ideas, and tools over the internet is such an effective way to spread knowledge. I hope to one day be able to share some of my ideas with other teachers around the globe.
