Free Technology for Teachers: Vidque - Create a Library of Educational Videos

Free Technology for Teachers: Vidque - Create a Library of Educational Videos | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it

Vidque is a new service that aims to help users curate their own collections of the best videos available on the Internet. Vidque allows users to grab videos from YouTube, Blip.tv, TED, and Vimeo to put into their own collections that they can share with others. You could also think of it the way TechCrunch did in describing Vidque as video bookmarking.

What makes Vidque unique compared to other video collection services like VodPod is that Vidque uses the videos you grab to help you locate more videos.

21st Century Skills are so last century!

21st Century Skills are so last century! | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it

The new mantra, the next big thing, among educators who need a serious sounding phrase to rattle around in reports is ‘21st Century Skills’. I hear it often, almost always in some overlong, text-heavy, Powerpoint presentation at an educational conference, where collaboration, creativity and communication skills are in short supply.

Francis Gilbert's curator insight, June 30, 4:40 AM

Interesting point being made here: the talk of creativity is actually "top-down, hierarchical" thinking with the big cheeses telling people what to do and how to think.
