YouTube & You
Rockstar Lake Tahoe - July 10, 2013
On this page are all of the resources that will be used for today's workshop. Please know that my resources for YouTube in the Classroom are regularly updated HERE (I'd bookmark this page).
Launching Our Journey
YouTube is an online video service with thousands of educational videos, teacher-created content, and videos produced by students. Due to its sheer volume and global audience YouTube is quickly becoming the digital media commons of the world. Not sure about that? Check out this video.
Step 1 - Finding Great Videos on YouTube
Finding Great Videos on YouTube
YouTube videos that have been curated according to national standards by classroom teachers. Currently, a group of California teachers are curating new lists and updating the ones that exist.
YouTube has over 1,000 educational channels. Use these listings to find great content - Primary & Secondary, Higher Education, and Lifelong Learning (Hint: Some of the best are in Lifelong Learning).
A new project created by TED specially focused on K-12 education. TED Ed actually contains a structure where teachers can take a video and turn it into a lesson "flip." However, all of the videos are hosted on YouTube, so TED Ed is a nice place just to find videos as well.
