Discover! Deliver! Document! Tip #4

Tip #4: The Great Debate- Hyperlinking vs. Embedding


As we all know, unitedstreaming has so many great videos and video clips that we could use daily in our lessons.  The question is – What can we do with the videos after we find them?  Did you know that you can create a hyperlink to a video in a word document?  You can also embed a video into a powerpoint slide for a presentation.  The key is knowing when to hyperlink a video and when to embed it! 

Check out the following documents for instructions on how to hyperlink and embed videos and how to choose which would work better for you!

There are so many ways that you can use unitedstreaming in your lessons everyday!  Once you learn the basics, you can use unitedstreaming with other software applications such as Inspiration, Kidspiration, Timeliner and PhotoStory.  But…we will save that training for another day!

    Thank you for visiting Polk County for our United Streaming follow up presentations. Our teachers at my school are so glad to have access to United Streaming to increase our availablity of resources to use at our fingertips. Linking with national and Sunshine State Standards is wonderful. The real learning happens when students are able to create their own media presentation using the clip art and video clips, and then share with an audience.. Thanks again.
