I visited Teacher Tube, School Tube and www.blinkx.com and found several videos I can use in my French class in support of the curriculum. I'm already using You Tube, but had not yet tried the other ones. I found Teacher Tube, the most useful one because it's easier to search and most of the videos have the embed code to put on a blog.
Regarding copyright and fair use, I think the most important point is to teach your students about this so they know what is and what is not allowed. REPURPOSE came up a lot in the song.
I created a Dropbox and it's a good tool to have to store information that you want to have available quickly and regardless of location. I would use it as an extra storage place since now I already have everything I need on the server of the school district.
