Dragontape.com Can Be Useful in Classrooms
I didn't play around with this site too much, but I did see it's possibilities. If you are showing 2-4 short clips from Youtube (and maybe any online video site), you can find them and paste them into a chain and then play the chain of videos. That way, you don't have to load up each individual video or go searching for each one while students wait. All the videos you want to show from your computer are right there in one continuous video. If this site allows videos from outside Youtube, then it can be extremely useful. Also, if this helps teachers get around Youtube being blocked by their school by creating the chain of videos at home (then becomes it's own URL...so not through Youtube), then it will be useful for those teachers. Give it a try!
