YouTube blocked? TeacherTube not quite what you're looking for? Ever wish you could just do the darn thing yourself? I recently discovered that you CAN! Via a Tweet from BudTheTeacher, I found a link to WeberTube. If you check it out, you'll find it's remarkably similar to YouTube, except with the abilty to upload pictures [...]
I've been working on a Second Life article, and part of it was spent checking out a few other virtual worlds. And while I thought I had a pretty good grasp on what was out there, this video shows that I really was just barely scratching the surface. Think you are a Virtual World Guru? [...]
Thanks to Justin Karkow for point out this post of Christine Southard's on the New York DEN Blog. Just in time for the beginning of the school year, Dalton Sherman has a message that is sure to inspire anybody who has chosen to devote their lives to education.

This one gets loud, so if yer at work, keep the volume control handy. Taylor Mall is a slam poet, who addresses a question that every teacher has heard at one time or another, "So, what do you make?" Take notes everybody, because I found this to be one heck of an answer.
Ever try to explain what a wiki is to somebody and just getting a blank stare in return? This video may help. I really enjoyed their RSS video as well, and hope they continue to create more.
