I can see many reason to use this in the classroom. It was so easy to create this video. This would be a great way to introduce a concept to student. It does not take up much time and it is something that would be entertaining. I could see using this if you knew in advance you were going to have a substitute. If there was a concept you really wanted to be able to teach you could record it and have the substitute play it.

Teacher Tube is a tool I have not used before. I can see many benefits of this program. Students learn in so many ways it is always great to have as many different learning experiences as possible. There are times that no matter how many ways I explain something I may have a student that still does not understand. This allows the students to hear explanations from other teachers as well. Students need to be entertained just teaching the students does not seem to be enough anymore. Video clips are always a great way for students to learn while being entertained. My students love to watch clips on United Streaming so I know they will enjoy this as well. This is a tool I will use this year.
