Alice Barr's insight:

With one billion monthly users (and growing),YouTube’s popularity is a pretty clear indication that video is a powerful medium. And kids’ unrelenting fascination with videos is motivating many educators to find ways to leverage them for all kinds of purposes.

 

But the best ways of using videos are not always obvious. Teachers want to know: Among all the millions of videos out there, how do you find the great ones? How do you evaluate the quality of a video? Who are the great content creators, and what are the best curation sites? Which kinds of videos work as fun supplements, and which are best for actual instruction? How do you get students engaged in discussion after watching videos? How do you blend videos into your curriculum?

The Women's Movement : PBS LearningMedia

The Women's Movement : PBS LearningMedia | Tech Tools for Teachers | Scoop.it
PBS Learning Media Home Page
Alice Barr's insight:

The Women's Movement was a diverse social moment in U.S. history. It sought equal opportunities for women in all aspects of their lives (personal, political, economic, etc.) 

The first wave of the women's feminist movement started in the 19th and early 20th century with leaders such as Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton fighting for legal rights for women such as the ability to vote and own property. The second wave of the women's movement, led by women such as Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinham, occurred in the 1960s and 70s and attempted to combat further social and political inequalities.  

This collection includes resources to support teaching both waves of the women's movement.
