Thing #20: YouTube, TeacherTube, and Zamzar

I thought that I would have a lot of fun with this thing, but I was actually a little aggravated while searching for videos, especially on TeacherTube. I would really like to incorporate educational videos into my classroom. This past year, I used the Discovery United Streaming videos while working on our Holocaust project. I thought it was great a great resource that is already in the district. It also was very easy to search for videos that were actually relevant. I used Blinkx to search also, but it brought up the most random videos ever, so I don't think I will try using it again. I guess I'll just give it time when searching for videos on TeacherTube and YouTube. Here are some videos that I liked from TeacherTube:
