TeacherTube – Teach the World

Posted on December 20, 2012. Filed under: YouTube | Tags: , , |

TeacherTube is a YouTube clone for education.

“After beta testing for almost two months, TeacherTube officially launched on March 6, 2007. Our goal is to provide an online community for sharing instructional videos. We seek to fill a need for a more educationally focused, safe venue for teachers, schools, and home learners. It is a site to provide anytime, anywhere professional development with teachers teaching teachers. As well, it is a site where teachers can post videos designed for students to view in order to learn a concept or skill.

TeacherTube was the idea of Jason Smith, a 14-year veteran educator. Jason has been a teacher, coach, campus administrator and district administrator in public schools. He asked the question, “Why can’t teachers, students, and schools utilize the power of the read/write web for learning?” To overcome barriers, he decided to just create a site and get started trying to help. He turned to his brother, Adam, who is a younger, digital native, with technical skills. Adam used his skills to develop the site and found a web host. Soon, Jason’s wife, Jodie, joined the team to start populating the site with videos and help improve the communication. She too has 14 years of experience in education as a classroom teacher, campus technology integrator, and district curriculum coordinator.

Most importantly, TeacherTube community members are a major part of the evolution of the site. Members are encouraged to not only upload educationally relevant videos, but also to make constructive comments and use the rating system to show appreciation for videos of value to one as an educator or learner. Users also have the ability to preserve the integrity of the site by flagging inappropriate videos. TeacherTube staff review flagged sites and will remove any inappropriate posts. With more collegial commentary and discussion through messaging and responses, the quality of this resource will only increase.

The service is free for everyone. We always encourage our users to Contact Us with thoughts, suggestions, or other feedback. We do have a vision for TeacherTube to truly be a better alternative to other video storage sites. With the community’s help, it can become more interactive and engaging for all teachers and learners.”

Who do Yoono?

Posted on February 21, 2010. Filed under: Facebook, Firefox, Freeware/Shareware, Google, Instant Messaging, networking, Techniques, text messaging (SMS), Twitter, Utilities | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Yoono will consolidate your social networks into a single interface, which will allow “users to create a custom look and the built-in features that allow the users to pretty much take care of any social task from within Yoono.”

Recommended by Sam Diaz at ZDNET: “available as both a desktop app (PC and Mac) and Firefox add-on, offers both a single-column and multiple-column view. The single column view allows users to toggle between the different networks while the multiple-column view allows users to create custom columns – maybe one for Facebook updates, one for Twitter direct-messages, another for Twitter updates and a fourth for MySpace notifications. And because you can resize the columns, the possibility of having several columns open for real-time viewing is greater.”

“For now, Yoono is only compatible with Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, LinkedIn, Flickr, FriendFeed. It also handles IMs via Yahoo, AIM, Live Messenger and Google Talk.  The company says integration with Google Buzz, YouTube, Yammer and Facebook Chat is in the works.”
