As they come to my attention, I try to collect videos that are of interest. "Of interest" can be a funny thing. Sometimes I find a video interesting because it may be of some historic significance--like Barack Obama's nomination by the Democratic Party. Sometimes I find a video of interest because it is creative or informative. Sometimes a video might be interesting to me because it just rubs my funny bone the right way at the time. Sometimes a video, though I may have issues with it, provokes me to think.
You can check out all of the videos in my collection at My Favorites on YouTube.
In this presentation, Hyper-Connected Students in the Accountability-Driven Classroom, I refer at least a couple of times to a presentation by Clay Shirky. He challenges and informs my thinking. He has several videos online. Some are included in the collection linked above.
Additionally, educators always ask me about Matt's video, Dancing. It too is included in my YouTube favorites.
