Watch The Vlog Brothers perform a live concert at Carnegie Hall. It is great! the music is lovely and the sentiments in the songs resonate! Lovers of the Green Brothers will be in heaven!
Joyce Valenza has posted a great guide to using You Tube. You can find it here. As she says in the post, there are lots of times when you want to show students or other staff a You Tube clip but you don’t need all of it and you don’t want to start at the very beginning. Learn how to cue it to start when you want it to start.
You can find helpful You Tube tips galore in the post. In fact it would take a bit of time to work through them all. You will find Copyright, Tips on Sharing, help with music for your videos and a whole heap more. But wait, there’s more! There are more links in the comments.
Sit down, turn up your sound, and watch yet another video, this time beautifully made, atmospheric and clever. Well done NZ Book Council! Share the love, let them know that you like it. Their Facebook Page is well worth joining and while you’re at it join Booksellers NZ’s Facebook page too.
There are a heap of library/book related videos doing the rounds at the moment, this is a real cutie.
“The State of Wikipedia not only explores the rich history and inner-workings of the web-based encyclopedia, but it’s also a celebration of its 10th anniversary. With more than 17 million articles in over 270 languages, Wikipedia has undoubtedly become one of the most visited and relied upon sites on the web today.”
The video features the co-founder, Jimmy Wales as the the narrator.
Very clever, interesting and relevant, and very well done.
This lovely video has gone viral and therefore I think it only appropriate that it goes on here. I’ve shown so many people now and I’m still seeing new things every time I view it. Enjoy!
In the I Wish I’d Known About This Before Department, is Documentary Heaven. This website allows you to find documentaries on topics as varied as you can think of. You can search by category, you can see what is being watched right now, you can connect via Facebook and Twitter and watch all the documentaries for free online. I am impressed. If your teachers subscribe to the English Listserv they will already know about this but for all your other staff this might be worth shouting out about.
