YouTube and Teaching

There’s no question that technology has an ever-increasing impact in classrooms, but what might be puzzling to some teachers is figuring out how to use the available technologies.

YouTube, for example, has 48 hours of content uploaded every minute, making it difficult to sort through videos to find content to support a specific lesson. YouTube Teachers, a section on YouTube specifically created for education, makes it easier for even the most technology challenged educators to use YouTube in their classrooms.

Some of the features on YouTube Teachers include pre-compiled playlists of videos for multiple grade levels and subjects, as well as helpful tips on making your own videos for classroom use. Another helpful feature is 10 Ways to Use YouTube in Your Classroom, a section that includes using YouTube for organization, reviews, student engagement, and more.
