YouTube EDU

This week’s Fabulous Friday Find might not seem so new to you since as a teacher you have access to YouTube and you may already be showing YouTube videos in your classroom.  For those who have already been doing this, keep reading, there’s more.  For those who haven’t used YouTube in your classroom you might want to check out YouTube EDU or YouTube.com/education

YouTube EDU offers hundreds of thousands of free educational videos.  Whether you’re a teacher or learner, YouTube EDU lets you discover, create, and share educational videos.  YouTube EDU is a repository of more than 500k educational videos from leading educational organizations, like Stanford, PBS and Khan Academy.  Educational and instructional videos are some of the most popular videos on YouTube.  Use YouTube EDU to find short lessons to supplement your in-school learning, watch full courses from the world’s leading universities, professional development material from fellow educators, and inspiring videos from global thought leaders.

And there’s more!  YouTube.com/teachers

YouTube.com/Teachers was created to show teachers how to use these videos to educate, engage and inspire their students.  YouTube.com/Teachers has hundreds of playlists of videos that align with common educational standards, organized by subject and grade. These playlists were created by teachers for teachers so you can spend more time teaching and less time searching.

And finally for the best part…..Our students have access to access to YouTube EDU!!! We now have YouTube for Schools which works with our filter to allow these YouTube.com/education videos to play but not allow our students to YouTube.com  How exciting for us and  our students to have all this wealth of knowledge right at our fingertips!  It’s becoming more evident as technology evolves, everyone can truly own and choose his/her learning.

  1. I am so glad that we are able to use youtube. Being able to use technology to show visuals of what I am teaching is important. Students who are not exposed to things outside Charlotte County need to make connections through visuals. For example I taught character words “sneaky and clever” and I asked them about “THe Bill Cosby Show where he sneaks and cuts the cake in a clever way. They had the video clip on youtube… its a great resource.

  2. First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a
    quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Kudos!

  3. Good day I am so grateful I found your blog page, I really found you by mistake, while I was
    browsing on Yahoo for something else, Anyhow I am here now
    and would just like to say cheers for a marvelous post and a all round interesting blog (I also love
    the theme/design), I don’t have time to look over it all at
    the minute but I have book-marked it and also included your RSS
    feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read a
    lot more, Please do keep up the excellent work.
