Embed video on your classroom web site

Posted in classroom web site, multimedia, Teaching Tools, Web 2.0 by Mark Barnes on January 17, 2010

Embedding a video that supports a lesson on your classroom web site is a wonderful way to grab your students’ attention and get them talking.

During our unit on Lois Lowry’s The Giver, I use video like the one embedded on my web site’s The Giver unit page.

You can grab the code for videos like this in any number of places. Obviously, YouTube is a great place for video, but many school districts block YouTube. With due diligence, though, you can find great videos, put them on your web site and get your students talking.
