Somewhere on YouTube and other web media sites, buried among the rejects from American’s Funniest Home Videos and stuff Viacom thinks is stolen, there are some educational gems.
By way of the daily podcast Future Tense, I discovered a blog called Open Culture whose writers find and write about videos, podcasts, and other materials that actually could be used for teaching and learning.
A recent post linked to an excellent and very interesting BBC profile of Iran. Another spotlights a collection of complete courses from the University of California at Berkeley available on the web at no charge.
One regular feature of the site is their regularly updated list of the top 25 educational podcasts available on iTunes.
This looks like something that deserves a place in any educators’ aggregator.
