6 videos for the ITGS classroom

Videos for the ITGS classroom

Today I stumbled across IBM’s channel on YouTube, which contains some excellent videos summarising how information technology is used in various ITGS specific scenarios. Although they are only short, I can see these videos being useful for introducing ITGS to students at the start of the year, or as a starter to generate discussion at the beginning of a new topic. Some of the better videos are below, and I recommend you check out IBM’s YouTube channel for more.
