Here are some creative EDUCATIONAL ways to use YouTube in the classroom. You can also go the TheOlyCenter channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/TheOlyCenter for some of my links, channels and playlists. Google owns YouTube. That means you have an account there and can log in with your GraniteSD account and build your own channel and playlists.
- Put YouTube videos in projects that you build for class.
- How to embed YouTube videos in a powerpoint (might be easier to use Google Slides)
- However you are better off "downloading" the video with something like zamzar file conversion (In case it gets blocked you'll still "have" the video.) Google will help you find many other options.
- Save videos to your M Drive, for future use.
- Some channels or videos may get blocked due to rated content of individual videos.
- Create your own channel or playlist for school. Playlists would be a great idea for different class topics and/or subjects.
- Upload your own videos for use in class/school.
- Teachers (and students) can create a channel and build playlists for different topics. These might be fun (oops, I mean educational) to show as starters. Don't get sucked into playing "just one more" and one more...
- USE HEADPHONES or mute it while in any computer labs. Teachers can use LanSchool to mute all the computers if needed.
- Teachers should not send kids to youtube. You should embed the youtube video in your canvas pages if you have videos for your students to watch.
