197 Educational YouTube Channels You Should Know About - Teachers With Apps

197 Educational YouTube Channels You Should Know About - Teachers With Apps | Home School | Scoop.it
"If you don’t have a YouTube channel as an education provider, there’s a good chance you’re behind the times. Nearly every major educational institution in the world now hosts its own collection of videos featuring news, lectures, tutorials, and open courseware. Just as many individuals have their own channel, curating their expertise in a series of broadcasted lessons. These channels allow instructors to share information and blend media in unprecedented and exciting new ways. From teaching Mandarin Chinese to busting myths about Astronomy, the educational possibilities are virtually endless pun intended! Because we can now sift through thousands of resources while navigating a single repository, the potential for inspiration and growth in the field of education has reached a new height. Here are the top channels worth following based on views, subscriptions, and quality of content:"

A World of Project Ideas (You Can Steal) - Edutopia

A World of Project Ideas (You Can Steal) - Edutopia | Home School | Scoop.it
"One of the advantages of project-based learning is the flexibility. PBL is an effective instructional strategy within individual content areas as well as across disciplines. It's engaging for young learners and teens alike. Good projects can be short term and tightly focused, or expansive enough to require months of inquiry. The sky's the limit -- which can be a challenge for teachers designing their first projects. Fortunately, you don't have to start from scratch. By borrowing good project ideas from other teachers, and adapting them to fit your context, you can get off to a faster start."

Two Politically Incorrect Ways To Improve Writing - Edudemic

Two Politically Incorrect Ways To Improve Writing - Edudemic | Home School | Scoop.it
"When I killed the five-paragraph essay, it wasn’t because I thought there was anything wrong with it. Some like it–I don’t object, but I started wondering, “Is this how I read?” If not, am I being honest to my students forcing them to write this way? The way we communicate is changing. We have to be willing to change along with it. Over time, we’ve trained our students to ask a question I hate, “How long does this have to be?” as if length alone determines the quality of the work. Like a Zen monk on a hill, I answer “Long enough to leave me feeling smarter when I’m done.” I tell students to perform “The Test.”"

Teach With Movies - Lesson Plans in History, English, Science for High School, Middle School, Elementary, Home School | Home School | Scoop.it
description by Internet Scout Project "Once upon a time, it might have seemed a bit curious to screen feature films in the classroom. With today's technology, it is quite common, and the Teach With Movies site is a great resource for those looking to integrate moving pictures into their classroom environments. On this website, visitors will find Snippets & Shorts, Sciences, Movie Worksheets, and a substantial variety of other areas. The Snippets & Shorts area is a particular gem, as it offers suggestions for using a range of popular films to teach concepts in science, history, English, and other subjects. Visitors will also want to look at the Age area to review appropriate films for different ages. The Movie Worksheets area includes film study worksheets addressing several different themes, including Hero's Journey, Cinematic and Theatrical Elements, and Historical Fiction. While the site does not provide direct access to copyrighted film material, it is an excellent source of support materials for teachers who will have access to the suggested films through their local or school libraries."

9 Steps To Scaffold Learning For Improved Understanding - TeachThought | Home School | Scoop.it
"Scaffolding is a critical teaching strategy that can support students struggling with a concept, or those that have mastered it. In short, to “scaffold” something is a metaphor that describes the process of supporting students so that they can achieve learning goals in lieu of content deficiencies. Or, in short, helping students succeed."
