Tool #3: Finding Online Video and Image Resources

Visit several of the video hosting/streaming sites mentioned above. Share with your readers which sites you found most useful for your content and why. Using any of the video resources mentioned above, find and select two videos that may be useful resources in your classroom. Embed them in your blog. If they do not have embed capabilities, hot link them to your blog. Articulate what you learned about copyright and fair use. What was new to you? Create a Dropbox account and add some files to it  How could you use this tool in your classroom?

My German III class enjoyed the telenovella "Jojo sucht das Glueck", which consisted of 33 three minute episodes. The visual component enhanced their understanding and added an important cultural dimension. [http://www.dw.de/dw/0,,13121,00.html]

My German II students are now working with German music videos that were compiled by goethe.de. This site provides dual language texts and also vocabulary and exercises.
