Tool #3

I  really liked finding videos that I can use in our science curriculum. I found both videos in You Tube but Discovery Education also had wonderful videos. I chose both videos because we are studying Earth Science and I created a link to each video. I also created a Dropbox Account and there is now a folder on my desktop that I can add files to and I especially like the fact that I can log onto my account from another computer and add photos to it.

Our Amazing Sun  Evolution of the Earth

I have always been a little confused about copyright and fair use rules for both photos and videos. As long as you are using copyrighted material for face to face teaching you do not need permission to use the material.

  1. Did you try to embed the videos rather than link? It is typically a little more interesting to the reader to have the video posted in the blog. However, glad you found some videos. I think it is also cool that you can download them to the mobile devices! Dropbox is a great tool. Easy way to move content between devices!
