WatchKnow -- Videos for kids to learn from

Finally! http://www.watchknow.org/ is a YouTube-like web site created especially for children by a co-founder of Wikipedia. YouTube is great, but its unfiltered format makes it inappropriate for young viewers. Both learners and teachers will appreciate this new resource, which was just launched in November and already includes hundreds of thousands of useful educational videos, all rated and sorted into an easy-to-use directory. Definitely join this non-profit online community and try searching for a video to help you teach one of your subjects!

You can watch this video for an overview of WatchKnow features. I think you'll be impressed.

  1. Here's another great website for kids. Check out MEET ME AT THE CORNER, Virtual Field Trips for Kids
    This series of virtual field trips is being distributed over the Internet as video pod casts on our web site www.meetmeatthecorner.org

    Each video is linked to fun websites and a Learning Corner of questions and extended activities. New episodes are uploaded every two weeks.

    This week children can take a virtual field trip to San Diego. Follow the young host Robert as he interviews a veteran who served on the USS MIDWAY and learns about life on this floating city.
