Tool # 3

I added 2 videos to my blog.  The first one is Raffi's, Apples and Bananas.  Since we've been working with vowel sounds, I figured the kids would enjoy practicing those sounds with this catchy song.  The second video is the Number Rock song.  This helps kids with their counting skills from 1-20.

At first I had some difficulty finding the embedding code for both of these videos. After clicking around on my computer, I finally was able to come up with it.  I am wondering if the codes will be difficult to find if I am using another computer.  I found the tool ViewPure helpful since it blocks the advertisements as well as inappropriate images that come up on the sides of YouTube videos.

As for copyrighting information, I found out that you are able to use pretty much everything if you are placing it in to a secure location.  I'm wondering since my page is open to the public if that will have an effect on the terms of "secure location".  As I was told in college if you give credit to the source, then there shouldn't be any issues with copyrighting.

I decided to download the dropbox folder for my computer.  This will be very helpful in allowing me to transfer the items I do at home to my school computer and vice versa.

  1. Anyone know how to keep the videos paused until play is clicked? Each time I log on to my blog, I know have 2 videos playing at one time...Almost a success, but there are things to fix!
