Some of these channels will be familiar to you, and unfortunately a couple no longer exist. Do check out YouTube EDU and The American Museum of  Natural History. They could be useful for your students and classes.

Lindsay Sprague's curator insight, January 29, 4:25 PM

You point the camera of your phone or iPad at the text you want to record and eHighlighter will automatically grab your highlighted text and save it for you to annotate.  In 7th grade ELA, students are constantly annotating.  I'd like them to practice at home, and this could be a great alternative to printing texts for them because they have the freedom to choose their own.  Win-win!

Jen Pollard's curator insight, February 14, 6:24 PM

My classmate Lindsay Sprague shared this great app! You point the camera of your phone or iPad at the text you want to record and eHighlighter will automatically grab your highlighted text and save it for you to annotate.  This could be great in K-12 education as well as for students in college.

Ways by which to enrich PBS outputs

Sophia Vitilio's curator insight, February 17, 2014 12:26 AM

 This article gives some free websites that students can use for project based learning assignments.  They all make projects easier for students to put together and to get to from different computers.  In a way this makes me think of my personal learning network with the free ways to share ideas through the internet.  These resources all seem very useful for a project based learning classroom and I cannot wait to see how they will grow and expand by the time I have my own classroom.
