Can't use YouTube because of the HCPSS firewall? use Teacher Tube!

"Imagine being able to access a free online educational community that shares instructional videos devoted exclusively to teaching and learning. Educator Jason Smith did more than imagine it; he enlisted the help of his younger brother, and together they turned their ideas into a reality called TeacherTube. Launched in March 2007, the overarching goal of TeacherTube is to "fill a need for a more educationally focused, safe venue for teachers, schools, and home learners" and to "provide anytime, anywhere professional development, with teachers teaching teachers." In addition to providing professional development for teachers, TeacherTube provides a place to post "videos designed for students to view in order to learn a concept or skill."
TeacherTube -- what a great idea!
