United Streaming

2 Jun

I sure hope that this post is not something new for anyone, but just in case someone hasn’t heard of UnitedStreaming, I had to pass it along. UnitedStreaming is a project by Discovery. They have put together thousands of videos into a searchable database. I use this on a weekly basis. They have nearly every topic covered. A particular favorite of mine is the Africa’s Child series. There are videos appropriate for K-12 and they run anywhere from a couple of minutes to over an hour. This is a subscription site, they offer a free trial, but if you can possibly persuade your school or district for a site license, it would be well worth it. The kids we teach have grown up with TV, many watched videos before they were even a year old. This taps into a natural learning modality for them.
