Learn What You Want, Teach What You Love...


There are lots of quality resources on the Internet but sometimes learners can spend a huge amount of time searching for it, searching and getting distracted by content that is not relevant to the task in hand.


MentorMob allows practitioners (and why not put learners into that role?) to focus their learner/peer’s attention by creating learning playlists of relevant content which can be enhanced by adding quizzes and comprehension exercises to test knowledge as they progress.


MentorMob playlists can be easily shared and embedded in blogs, a vle etc.-.

Bullying Prevention: Video Playlist on YouTube

Hopefully these videos will provide some good 'starters' for discussion.


Bullying is a subject that's grown increasingly complex and troubling over the years: while in-person teasing and harassment has never flagged, new technologies have given rise to cyberbullying, which can be equally as damaging -- and even more public.


And sadly news of tragic consequences, stemming from cases of both kinds, spreads quickly through social media.


It's important that learning provider stakeholders are vigilant in encouraging learners to be empathetic, and to become "upstanders" rather than bystanders.


This collection of video clips have some positive messages to share with learners, and some tools for fighting back against bullying.

teachers's Channel - YouTube

teachers's Channel - YouTube | technologies |

YouTube Teachers is a new YouTube channel launched by YouTube itself.


Its aim? - to inform teachers about the many ways that they can use videos in their learning environments.


YouTube Teacher features...
- video-based lesson plan suggestions,
-suggested playlists for a variety of content areas, and
-suggestions for creating videos with learners.


YouTube Teachers won't fix the problem of access to it being restricted by many learning providers, but it could help show some decision-makers the educational uses of YouTube in the classroom.


If practitioners are able to access YouTube in learning environments, YouTube Teachers could be a good source of lesson ideas for them.

Giving teachers the option to use video to provide factual content to students who can view the information from the teacher both in class and at home.
