We've added this feature on The Big Four Community! Just upload (or embed) your video clip on the "My Page" tab under My Videos. Be sure to put in the tag 'thinkingdevices' as a single word. The video will be posted from your page, but will also show on the new Thinking Devices page located here.
Tips: If it's a video from your computer, you will need to choose Add Videos --> Upload Videos from your computer. If you have a video from YouTube or Google, you can just copy the HTML 'embed' code from any popular video site and add that video to this network. For this, go to Add Videos --> then scroll to the bottom of the page to the section that says "Add videos from YouTube or Google". From that section, just click on Add Videos. You'll see a text box that you can paste the 'embed' code into. Be sure to put in the tag 'thinkingdevices' as a single word so that the videos go to the Thinking Devices library!
Another way to get to the Thinking Devices videos is to click on the Videos tab at the top of the page, then click on Thinking Devices on the menu located under Videos.
It’s written by Gulzar Saab, music by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, and sung by Shankar Mahadevan. It's for the Lead India Initiative. You don't need to understand the language to get the meaning. In fact, for using it as a thinking device, maybe it's better that it's not in English.
Another clip that I have used in professional development training is this video of Irish storyteller Eamon Kelly. It wouldn't be appropriate for use in the classroom because of some innuendo, but it's fun for use with adult learners. I have them use the effective stories checklist while watching - but most of the time they get so engrossed in the story that they forget to use the checklist until they're done watching :-) Then we analyze the clip for helpful ideas about story delivery. A great story suffers without great delivery and a simple story becomes great with great delivery. Eamon Kelly is the model for everything we teach about using stories.
