So, if you want to peek inside Finland, there are 3 videos on this BBC Wales site that will give you what you want. This Diary of a math teacher in Finland gives you a peek. There’s also two other great videos “Let teachers teach, say Finns” and “Finland Classroom Success Secrets.” You can embed these that I can find, so you’ll need to share the links and watch them on the site. These short videos are just under 4 minutes and would be great to share in a staff meeting.
While most teachers will not understand what this means, an API is something that lets other websites interact with a main website. OpenEd has released an API to allow others to interact with their resources and find things based on standards or keywords. What this means is that OpenEd is going to be a very useful tool for all of education in the future because of this technological tool. It also means that if you’re developing for a state or for an organization that provides educational resources, you should tap into this for a huge repository of almost a quarter of a million standards aligned resources that your teachers can search. This is great news.
A Capella Science - Bohemian Gravity! (by acapellascience)
The strange world in which we live is that a masters student will likely get his thesis read because it is attached to a really incredibly geekily awesome video which is a physics parody of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody. It is worth a watch even if string theory is something you do when you try to estimate how far to stand away from the your friend when you try to shoot the string cheese at his mouth.
This hilarious parody has Mickey Mouse and Disney inspired elements mashed up with Star Wars. I love the Death Star with the mouse ears! ;-)
FOCUS show with Special Guest Vicki Davis (by TheFocusShowOnline)
Had a great conversation a few weeks a go with Don Wetrick and his students. They filmed via Skype and my students got a chance to share what they learn and about my classroom. I enjoyed the conversation and have to admit that my students were quite jealous of the recording studio Don has.
I met Don at the Microsoft Innovative Educators conference in Seattle. He’s a great teacher and teaches with video. I love that he has his students create a video show about social media in the classroom. I follow their YouTube channel online, you mgith want to as well.
The Ignite Show - Flattened Classroom Segment
Very interesting flipping classroom assignment app called Knowmania. They have a homework assignment tool coming soon. I think this is a fascinating tool and there are many lessons to choose from. Right now I don’t see any pricing, but am looking into what model they are using to sustain themselves. Looks like a powerful flipping tool, particularly for homework.

Many schools say that too many people focus on “test scores”, yet how often do we share (in engaging ways), the stats that are really important to many of our community. Wouldn’t a video like this for a school year, or broken up into semesters and terms, share some REALLY important stats that many miss out on that goes beyond showing our kids as “test scores”?
I love hat Dean Shareski did with this and am thinking I might get my students to do something similar with their efolio for the year. Wow what a great idea. Love it.

"Front & Center with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. Photos, videos and stories from our artists. Interviews, articles and links from our staff. A new way to follow the music!"
So many organizations are finding an audience on Tumblr and YouTube. Schools, arts, and more. The stage is no longer the only stage or the most important stage - and websites like tumblr can help struggling nonprofits attract more.
In this series, the artists are talking about how they’ve created new artistry around the Nutcracker. Very cool.
