Since we’re weighing in on our favorites, (and no-one has mentioned this one yet), check out http://www.ted.com

TED stands for Technology Education and Design, and is an awesome resource of experts in these fields, giving 10 to 15-minute talks, in video format.

It’s liking hiring world-renowned experts into your classroom.

I would reccommend all teachers taking a look at http://www.zaneeducation.com

The reason we use this site is because it is the online educational video site where the content has been produced specifically for the curriculum but more importantly each video is subtitled which provides each child with the option to watch, listen to, or read each presentation.

The link between the use of quality subtitles and the improvement in reading skills is now becoming recognised in academic circles and the online videos here address 11 subjects and 240 curriculum topics and provide each child with the opportunity to improve their reading skills while learning each subjects.

The other issue they don’t use YouTube to deliver their video like Khan and SchoolTube etc which are blocked by mast school and college systems.
