YouTube Classroom Video Collaboration

YouTube Stuff

I’m coming to see YouTube as the next wave of educational collaboration and sharing.

If you put your videos on YouTube, anyone has access to them so your students (and other students of the same subject) can see them at any time to view content. They can view and review the videos. Classroom videos that your students make can be put up for other classes to see. Your class and a class in a distant location can create videos on different aspects of the same topic and share then on YouTube. Your class and other classes can share how local history, science, language, and math reveal itself in your communities. Imagine if ten schools videotaped their local “underground railroad” locations and shared them. Imagine if ten schools interviewed local officials about what is being done to prevent global warming in the area and shared those videos. Imagine if ten schools asked local poets or writers about how to be better writers and shared those videos. Imagine if ten teachers shared their hints at helping students to do well on the same state exam in their subject area and shared those videos.

Instead of having your students create a PowerPoint, a poster, or a model, have them create a short video using a digital camera.

Imagine what could happen if each school district in the USA (and in each nation) put up an instructional video by Nov. 2007. We would have a gigantic library of YouTube videos that would be powerful instructional tools created by educators and students for other educators and students. What a positive collaboration!

So when will your district (or your class) put up an instructional YouTube video? How will you help your students and other students to better learn your subject area through YouTube.

    TeacherTube might be a better place to put educational videos. I found a great one called ‘Why let chldren blog’ at .
    Thanks for this post – I’m going to use it in a presentation today about what communication means to the 21st century teacher and learner.

    Thanks for the resource, realstrings. It seems to have more educational material than YouTube. I really like videos that teachers made for their class and even more, the ones that students made to demonstrate their learning.

    Can I simply say what a relief to search out somebody who truly is aware of what theyre speaking about on the internet. You definitely know the best way to convey an issue to gentle and make it important. More people must learn this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre no more common because you undoubtedly have the gift.
