Cool Tools for the 21st Century Classroom

Diigo Weekly Bookmarks


What’s new this week in my Diigo bookmarks? Check out the links shown below for three free resources that will help you avoid the Internet cycle of shame when using videos in the classroom!

» ViewPure

A favorite tool of mine! Use this resource to watch YouTube videos without any other distractions—ads, pop-ups and comments. Plus, no additional videos will automatically play once yours has ended. Another cool feature is the bookmarklet that can be installed, which saves users several steps. (See my full blog post about this tool here.)


Like ViewPure, this web tool reduces ads and other unwanted distractions so that videos can be viewed safely. Simply copy/paste the URL of the YouTube or Vimeo video into the tool, and this will generate a SafeView containing only the video and some basic controls (i.e. start/end position).

A Chrome extension and mobile app that automatically removes search ads, pop-ups and banners from YouTube, Facebook and everywhere else on the web. An excellent resource to install on computers where students might be using the Internet for research and/or other purposes.
