Tool #3: Finding Online Video and Image Resources

I have been able to find excellent YouTube videos to on Physics to share with my students as well as videos that I have been able to use to deepen my content knowledge.  I am so glad the district opened up access to YouTube.  I have used a YouTube video the first week of school to motivate my students.  Check it out below.

Here is another YouTube video I plan to use in my physics class to demonstrate to my students how you can use physics to make a positive impact in the world.

I already have a DropBox account.  I use it to collaborate with other AP Physics teachers to exchange lessons, exams, labs and worksheets.

I am glad to know that there are copy right exceptions to teachers under the fair use in the US Copy Right Law that makes our job easier.


  1. Sounds like you've really embraced the 11 Tools model - great work!!!

  2. I love that we can use YouTube videos during our instruction time here at Memorial! I think it really broadens the students knowledge of what YouTube can be used for. A lot of the time, students go on YouTube just for fun to watch silly videos. Now, they can start to understand that it can be used for learning/ educational purposes too. This is especially useful in my dance classes! Being able to watch different dance performances really allows the students to visually see what a particular genre should end up looking like.
