If I thought Tool Two took time, Tool Three made me reach for the Ms. Clairol bottle sooner than I needed to! It took a long time to get this video sharing done. I have frequently used different video sites/hosts/streaming in the past, especially if I wanted to share a song or a video with my classes. I have also found these type of sites useful to look up videos that provide information on authors, some of them who are already deseased, so it is a way of bringing an author to life for my students. What I learned about copyright use that was new to me was that a large majority of material out there is free game for teachers and students if it is being published to a secure location that requires passwords and firewalls, as long as it is for instructional and sharing purposes.
My Dropbox has been created and I have added a written file to it which is a lesson plan that has my students using this very Blog, Hot Tamales.
