teachertube-logo1Happy Holidays! Here is a quick little post to keep things warm. I am on vacation and will begin regular posting again next week. So, here is an off the wall recruiting tip regarding sourcing for education professionals. With the passing of the recent elections, I have been hearing a lot of talk surrounding education and how can we recruit and develop strong educators. Well, I can’t really help with the development of our educators, but I can spend a few minutes to share a great way to locate and network with some great teachers.

If this happens to be your field of recruitment I would highly suggest checking out Shally at JobMachine and read his post regarding education searching using some great Boolean strings. He really sheds some light for you on using honor societies and some great keywords as well.

teachertube-2I do however want to share a pretty neat tool I came across while online with my wife who is a teacher. It’s called TeacherTube! Yes, it’s very similar to YouTube but it’s strictly education. Watch real educators teach lessons to students and listen to unique and creative ways they are implementing these strategies in the classroom.

Tip: Poke around a bit. It’s not flooded with them, but if you hit the right channels you will find some how to videos in other professional like software development.

I’ll see you all next week!

So, here is another great tool that I’ve been using now for a few weeks that I wanted to share with everyone. It’s called Yotify and it works as an aggregator or a “scout” as the site calls it.  Regardless: I like the tool and I have become a pretty big fan of it’s applications over the last couple of weeks.

Just a quick video to share with everyone on personal brand. Gary is an outstanding speaker and a definite motivator. You can Google him if you are interested and here him speak in many settings. He has been featured on shows like Conan O’Brien and Nightline for his outspoken and unique yet intriguing way.

He is the founder of Wine Library TV and the former CEO of his family business that he grew with social media and the internet from just a few million to over 60 million in just 7 years.

Very informative and a definite thumbs up!
