TubeChop - Chop YouTube Videos

TubeChop - Chop YouTube Videos | Foreign Language Flipped Class Resources | Scoop.it

TubeChop allows you to easily chop a funny or interesting section from any YouTube video and share it.

 

This is great because bandwidth is a real issue at my school, so I can show snippets. It is also good when we are working on listening because I can "force" students to stop and think about what they have heard so far.

Flipping Blooms Taxonomy | Powerful Learning Practice

Flipping Blooms Taxonomy | Powerful Learning Practice | Foreign Language Flipped Class Resources | Scoop.it

In media studies we often look at the creation of print and digital advertisements. Traditionally, students learn many of the foundational principles for creating a layout through a lecture or text book reading, and then eventually create their own.

What if we started with creativity rather than principles?

Ulrike Grabe's curator insight, January 10, 3:56 AM

Who ever suggested Bloom's taxonomy as a pyramid that required to master the bottom levels before the top ones?
