YouTube Channel for Teachers

YouTube has developed a channel just for teachers.  From what I have seen so far it looks like they have done a great job of compiling videos along with ideas for using them in the classroom. 

Here are a few things you should check out:  

1.  On the main page, click on the Getting Started tab to view 10  Ways to Use YouTube in the Classroom.  The suggestions listed here are great ways to begin using YouTube in your classroom.  One of the most interesting ideas is #10: Flip Your Classroom.  This idea suggests that you record your instruction and have students listen to it at home.  Class time can then be spent on collaborative learning projects that allow students to be active learners. 

2.  Also check out the different types of videos available (this is in the Getting Started section).  One type listed and demonstrated is Student Videos.  Students can create their own videos and upload them to YouTube instead of creating traditional paper reports.  

3.  Think about creating your own Channel.  The Create a Channel section gives a tutorial for how to do this.  Creating your own channel allows you to make all of the videos you create for your students easily accessible.  

4.  Also, check out other Channels that have been made available by other teachers.  One specific channel that offers lots of great math videos is Mathademics
