Tool #3 Find Online video and image resources!

For your Tool #3 Assignment:
  1. Visit several of the video hosting/streaming sites mentioned above. Share with your readers which sites you found most useful for your content and why.
  2. Using any of the video resources mentioned above, find and select two videos that may be useful resources in your classroom. Embed them in your blog. If they do not have embed capabilities, hot link them to your blog.
  3. Articulate what you learned about copyright and fair use. What was new to you?
  4. Login to your Picasa Web Album through Google Apps - don't download Picasa, just click on the Web Albums link. Search for a few pictures. After searching, look at the filters on the left. Use the Creative Commons or remix filter to find images that you can reuse and remix. How could you use this in your classroom?
 I searched youtube video, google and found many helpful resources, string orcherstras performances and theory lessons for different instruments and activities which it would be great for orchestra students to watch.

Copyright laws state that you can not publish to the general public, only to a secure site and only for educational purposes.

Here are some links to websites that would be use for the orchestra students:
Whats Orchestra all about?

You will learn to play incredibly well.   Everyone will want to hear you play.  Your concerts will be fantastic.   Your first concert will be our annual Haunt-cert!  The auditorium will be packed and everyone will be amazed!  You will get to win trophies as a group and you will even get to win a medal!!  Playing a stringed instrument is a phenomenal mental and physical challenge.   You will be SO proud of yourself and the group with which you perform.
You won’t believe all the music you’ll get to play!  Everyone talks about how much they like to listen to different kinds of music but it is 100 times more fun to get to play it! The middle school beginning orchestra offers such a fantastic opportunity to experiment - to try an instrument - to see what talents lay hidden.  You may never have this opportunity again.  You will get to play and love some of the greatest music ever written!
