From Free Technology for Teachers: Snag Films, a provider of high quality documentaries for online viewing, has now launched Snag Learning. Snag Learning offers access to most of the same films available on Snag Films. Snag Learning categorizes documentaries by grade level and content area. Additionally, Snag Learning offers a series of guiding questions for each film. You can embed previews of each video into your blog, but you have to watch the full-length versions on Snag Learning.
Applications for Education
If you can live with the pre-roll advertisement on the films, Snag Learning could be a good resource for teachers who want to use documentaries in their classrooms, but don’t have the funds for purchasing DVDs. Snag Learning is planning to add lesson plans to accompany the guiding questions attached to the films they host.
