Your essential guide to YouTube playlists - Daily Genius

Your essential guide to YouTube playlists - Daily Genius | BHS Ed Tech | Scoop.it

And the videos auto play, so that your viewers will follow the programming you’ve given them, and watch for longer – and it’s that viewing time that seriously helps in the optimisation (fundability) of videos on YouTube.

 

So if you want people to actually see your videos, seriously consider this advice, fromVidpow, and watch those viewing figures go up.

Persuasion Map - ReadWriteThink

Persuasion Map - ReadWriteThink | BHS Ed Tech | Scoop.it

The Persuasion Map is an interactive graphic organizer that enables students to map out their arguments for a persuasive essay or debate. Students begin by determining their goal or thesis. They then identify three reasons to support their argument, and three facts or examples to validate each reason. The map graphic in the upper right-hand corner allows students to move around the map, instead of having to work in a linear fashion. The finished map can be saved, e-mailed, or printed.
