Science teaching colleagues,
You may recall that there is a group of adult basic education science teachers here who, led by Susan Cowles and me, have been looking at free, online science videos that might be appropriate for adult basic education, adult secondary education and/or transition to college students. We have put together a document for you that we would like to get your feedback on. It's organized by: 1) twenty-two science video collection sites, and 2) by science topic: Animals, Astronomy, Botony (Plants), Chemistry, Earth Science, Human body, health and disease, Microscopic view of the world, Nature, Nutrition, Physics, Science history, and Zoology You will find the draft list at https://docs.google.com/document/d/19F-_A7T-HcwwCCctxDoGFN0fyrryfKE1I_jG6-sLt1g/edit#
Please look at it now and post your comments here.
1. Are there good, free, online science videos for adults that we missed? If so, let us know what they are and if possible give us a web address.
2. Does this list look useful to you?
3. How would you use this list in teaching science?
Please do not distribute the list yet. After we have made revisions I will post a link to the final list, and you can distribute it then. For now, this is for your review only,
If you think you might be interested in joining this group and reviewing science videos in 2014-2015, please let me know.
In a few days I will post here the second product of this group, reviews of ten videos from this list. Stay tuned.
Questions and comments are welcomed!
