Are you looking to experience science and math through a different lens? STEMbite is a YouTube channel with engaging "bite-sized" lessons from a unique first-person perspective through Google Glass. This intro page explains the project and gives the link to the actual YouTube channel. Math and science surrounds us in our everyday life. STEMbite opens your eyes to infinite possibilities. The videos engage you through a short explanation and motivate you to learn more. Examples of videos include math at the pharmacy, washing machine physics, chemistry in your kitchen, probability challenge, the polarization of light, and more! Subscribe to the STEMbite YouTube channel to make your mind hungry to learn about the application of math and science in our everyday life. STEMbite will change your point of view on math and science.

tag(s): atmosphere (28), energy (202), probability (128), STEM (143), video (268), waves (24)

In the Classroom

Use STEMbite videos as an anticipatory set or "activator" to introduce a unit or lesson on a projector or interactive whiteboard. Discuss the videos in STEMbite and informally assess the prior knowledge as you start a lesson or unit of study. STEMbite is a great find for gifted students (logic, unusual topics, in-depth investigation, and more). Be sure to include this site on your class web page or blog for students to access both in and outside of class. Have your students create their own first-person videos on a math or science topic. Create an online or printed comic similar to a STEMbite video on a science or math concept using one of the tools and ideas included in this collection. If your district blocks YouTube, then STEMbite may not be viewable for students at school. You could always view the videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid reviewed here to download the videos from YouTube. To share a single video from this site without all the YouTube clutter, use a tool such as SafeShareTV, reviewed here and create a shortcut to the SafeShare page directly on the desktop.

It is suggested that an adult look for appropriate graphics to distribute to students.

Pinterest and Learnist are for general public use, but eduClipper takes the best of both of those tools and puts them together for educators and their students. The real difference with eduClipper for educators is the ability to create classes. Make your clipboards public or private. Post videos, documents, links, or upload files. Get great ideas by browsing existing clipboards with no registration, or save those searches and create subject specific clipboards by registering for free.

tag(s): bookmarks (60), organizational skills (127), social networking (113)

In the Classroom

The real difference about eduClipper for educators is the ability to create classes. This makes it easy to create small groups for investigations and have the students post for each other their findings and suggestions. Brainstorming with the entire class with eduClipper allows everyone to contribute and view the brainstorm even when they are not in class. For more ideas about using eduClipper with and in your classroom, see the classroom suggestions for a similar program, Learnist, reviewed here.
