Resources To Start Off Your Week 55

     The time has finally come and I am officially in my last full week of classes at university! All that is left now are some final projects and presentations and then it is off to student teaching again! I am so excited to be back in the classroom and start applying for teaching jobs once they are posted. To help prepare for student teaching I found a great new Resource To Start Off The Week. As always, I will be adding this to my lists of resources under the Fav Websites heading.

- Knowmia is a great resource for teachers that hosts over 10,000 video lessons
  designed for classroom use. Teachers can search through videos by subject areas
  like English, Math and Social Studies as well as subcategories like Grammar,
  Algebra and Geography.
- Videos are created by teachers in the subject area and uploaded directly onto the
  site. Many of these videos are also available on YouTube through the teachers'
  individual accounts but by hosting the videos on Knowmia the ads and suggested
  videos lists (which are sometimes inappropriate) are eliminated. It is also perfect for
  schools or divisions that filter out YouTube on the school server.
- Knowmia also offers tech tools for creating video lessons and interactive homework
  assignments. They also offer training and information on using videos in the
  classroom and the flipped classroom model.
- I really like how easy it is to navigate through videos and find ones that best fit the
  subject and topic level that I am looking for.

Happy Monday everyone!


  1. Thanks for the heads up on this site! I had never heard of it before I read your post, I am excited to incorporate it into some lessons in the next few weeks! Good luck with your last student teaching placement!:)

    1. No problem! It is definitely helpful for schools that don't have access to YouTube or for teachers who want to find videos without looking through countless YouTube accounts. Good luck with your placement as well :)
