Here’s a great resource for upper grades science teachers who want to incorporate videos to help explain topics in their classroom/curriculum.

DNATube is a free instructional video sharing site (not blocked in our District!) that allows science teachers to look up and stream instructional videos for a variety of topics related to the field of Biology, with a few Chemistry & Physics topics thrown in for good measure.  It works a lot like YouTube and TeacherTube, but it looks less cluttered.  DNATube contains a number of videos, Power Point presentations, and Flash animations that would help support a number of topics in many secondary science teachers’ curricula. (The explanations in the videos I randomly previewed would be WAY over the heads of most K-5 kids, and many middle grades kids as well.)  Many of the videos I previewed are very good, quite appealing visually, and would look great on a projecotr or SmART Board.  A lot of the content was beyond me, though.  There are also taped lectures from classes at MIT, too, if you’re so inclined.
