WatchKnow is a database of useful educational videos, well-organized and available for free. It's somewhat similar to services such as United Streaming or Learn 360. This is a great option for districts on a tight budget. Also, this website prides itself on being "Kid Safe." I like that there are no inappropriate comments listed below the videos, like there tend to be on You Tube. Also, this website expands the more it is used by others willing to share their own videos, so join WatchKnow and, if you use some of their videos, return the favor by uploading some videos that you think your fellow teachers might appreciate.

The main purpose of this blog is to help her keep track of all of the fabulous tools out there that she has encountered, but if she can help a few others along the way, that's good, too.
