Stop Spending Hours Curating Videos For Your Class, Let BoClips Do That For You
There are tens of billions of videos available on the internet today. From Youtube to Vimeo, Facebook and random websites, we are surrounded by video content. It’s been proven time and time again that video content is one of the most engaging platforms for students in grades K-12. The problem is, that there’s too much of it to sift through.
Teachers looking to integrate video content into their lessons first need to find that content, and then they need to secure the rights to it. They need to know that the content is aligned to their core curriculum and appropriate for students in their grade level. The last thing teachers need is a parent screaming on the phone (or by text message) about video content in the classroom.
If a teacher were to spend his or her time trying to curate videos for class they would have no time to teach, much less eat or sleep. Add to that securing the rights and they’re going to need a small army of workers under them.
Luckily there’s boclips.
boclips is a video library with nearly 3 million videos from publishing partners like The Associated Press, Bloomberg, Nature Picture Library, mand countless others. boclips has gone through the painstaking process of making sure that videos are appropriate for the learning environment.
