Yesterday, I recommended this video because it has an interactive transcript in English. When you click on any word in the transcript, it brings you to the location in the video where that word was spoken. http://www.ted.com/talks/jamie_oliver.html
(also available without the transcript in youtube).
A related interesting video is "How to Live a Long Healthy Life (Part 1 of 5) - Living to 101 - BBC Horizon" at
I challenge you to watch it and create a comprehension quiz or some other mini project (perhaps a response video?) for our readers. As most of you will know, Bloom's Taxonomy states that higher order thinking skills involved in creating or presenting something (like a quiz) increasse your learning (help us remember better what we analyse or process to teach or present to another person).
Proof: Why do you think Alessandro's English had increased exponentially (a huge and fast gain) since he began creating this teaching blog?
Let's follow Alessandro's good example and teach each other in the spirit of the 21st century constructivist student who not only recognizes that he constructs his own knowledge, but that he learns socially, by being activiely engaged in his learning.
