Don’t Forget…Cite Your Sources!

As educators all of us tell students how important it is to cite sources. Of course the same is true when we are using videos from Discovery Education. What better way to drive the point home than to model citing sources for our students. The best part is….it is very easy to do! Download your favorite video segment. On the DE web page, click on the citations tab and copy the citation format you are going to use. On a PC right click on the saved file, select properties, then the details tab. Paste the citation information into the comments field. On a MAC select the file, next click File, Get Info. Paste the citation information into the comments field.  Now your citation will be handy anytime you or your students use the video. With a simple copy/paste students can have the citations at their finger tips.
