DIGITAL MEDIA RESOURCES


I probably sound like a broken record, but by far my favorite digital media resource is iTunes--especially PODCASTS! So much great content is free, easily downloadable to your computer, and shown over your new projector and audio system. I have a wiki devoted to all things iTunes: http://itunes.wikispaces.com.

Video
The use of instructional videos often help students to retain information and make a visual connection to the information they are hearing or reading. The use of video can enable a classroom to go on impossible field trips, travel to new places, explore abstract or complex concepts, show experiments which can't be done in class, etc.
