Here's the Way That I Recommend Using the Internet Archive

In last night's Practical Ed Tech Tip of the Week newsletter I mentioned using the Internet Archive as a source of public domain video clips to re-use in classroom video projects. That suggestion drew a lot of emails from readers this morning. Most of the emails expressed concern about the content that students can find on the Internet Archive. I have concerns about it too which is why I recommend that you use the Internet Archive to find public domain video clips that you then put into a folder to share with your students. By doing that, your students don't have to go to the Internet Archive to find public domain video clips. This evening I recorded a short video to provide a bit more explanation and a demonstration.
