How to find new videos from the latest ClickView Content Updates

How to find new videos from the latest ClickView Content Updates
Earlier, I posted an article about schools missing out on many library content updates, the reasons why this happened, and how we set out to resolve that for schools. The recent ClickView changes enable us to reliably deliver new video content to your school as fast as possible. No more missing videos. This in turn saves time for librarians so they can now concentrate on ensuring their teachers find the right resources for their classes. In this article, I want to quickly explain a couple of ways in which librarians and teachers can find the…

Delivering the latest high quality video content into your classrooms

Delivering the latest high quality video content into your classrooms
At ClickView, our core focus has and always will be to enrich classroom learning experiences for teachers while saving time for librarians.

Schools who have been with ClickView for a long time will remember receiving DVDs containing new content from ClickView, which were then replaced by USB drives, and then finally via “a push” to…

How to engage an ever-changing generation of language learners – using video!

Screens are their source of entertainment and information as well as their means of communication. And yes, screens are an integral part of their classrooms. Video…

Hey! Olivia de Havilland’s Stealing My Popcorn! (and How That Can Influence English Language Arts)
Ok, that might be stretching it. Olivia de Havilland is not stealing popcorn BUT there are ways to feel as if actors Olivia de Havilland, Henry Fonda, and the like are right there enriching, informing and engaging our students. From the 1918 silent “Romeo and Juliet” to the recent version of The Beguiled a century later, to everything in between, we’ve seen hundreds of pieces of classical literature turned into films ranging from multi-million dollar, star-studded, “motion picture events” to Muppet movies! There’s a reason for that. Classic books contain classic stories and Hollywood, from…
