This past July I spent an action-packed day learning about YouTube in the classroom at The YouTube Teachers Studio with fantastic lead learners, Jim Sill, Ramsey Musallam and James Sanders. We heard from Will Houghteling about what the YouTube Education team is cooking up. One of their goals is to find a way to give access of the great educational content that exists on YouTube to the teachers and students in schools where YouTube is currently blocked. They have a number of good ideas in the works. Today they launched to support teachers with ideas for using YouTube in the classroom complete with examples and screencasting tips. Additionally teachers can sign up for the YouTube newsletter for teachers and submit their favorite YouTube playlists to be highlighted on YouTube EDU. You can read more about the launch on YouTube's blog and view my interview below.
