You Tube and Teacher Tube are both wonderful resources. I am sad that they are blocked in my school district but who knows maybe one day they won't be. It is also good that there are ways around the blocking. I had actually heard of Zamar before and how it can be used to convert files so you can watch the videos when the site is blocked.
I know that my daughter lives by You Tube. She uses it for everything from checking out cheer moves to how to apply eyeshadow. I can spend hours on both sites! My students will be reading short stories by Edgar Allen Poe this last six weeks so it was only natural that I looked for videos that could help with this. We also read Poe's poem "Annabell Lee" and I was excited to find many videos of the poem. I know the kids will enjoy watching the video instead of just reading the poem. I embedded the clip that I plan to show my students.
