Using multimedia in the classroom has become imperative in the 21st century classroom. Students tend to show more engagement and motivation when you play a video in the class.Given this importance of audio visual materials in education, more and more websites are created to provide video resources for educators.

And one more....It is one of my favorites:Dan Meyer: Math class needs a makeover780,948 Views just on TED Talks on YouTube 87,993
Dan Meyers Blog:http://blog.mrmeyer.com
Why you should listen to him:Dan Meyer asks, "How can we design the ideal learning experience for students?" As a part-time Googler, a provocative blogger and a full-time high-school math teacher, his perspective on curriculum design, teacher education and teacher retention is informed by tech trends and online discourse as much as front-line experience with students.
Meyer has spun off his enlightening message -- that teachers "be less helpful" and push their students to formulate the steps to solve math problems -- into a nationwide tour-of-duty on the speaking circuit.
"I teach high school math. I sell a product to a market that doesn't want it but is forced by law to buy it."
