I first mentioned Youtube.com/teachers several months ago and suggested it as a great resource for educators.
It’s gotten better. So I’m back with an update.
YouTube.com/Teachers was created to help teachers use YouTube videos
to educate, engage, and inspire their students.
And the Youtube people are working with a group of teachers to put together a series of playlists of partner videos that align with Common Core standards. The nice thing about this new addition is the handy-dandy playlists are listed in an easy-to-navigate way.
You’ll find elementary and secondary Social Studies sections (as well as math, Language Arts and Science) with a wide variety of topical playlists. You can also suggest your own playlists to be included in their database.
It looks a bit like a work in progress because they haven’t yet sorted out a ton of videos. But there’s enough there to get you hooked on the idea.
Give it a try. And be sure to have fun!
