YouTube in the classroom: A new necessity?

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Districts are dropping bans on YouTube and allowing students and teachers access to the site’s educational videos. Paving the way in this shift in policy are large districts like Chicago and Broward County, Fla.

YouTube’s library of educational content allows educators to teach more creatively, says Angela Lin, manager of YouTube’s Education Partnerships. “After learning the same way for hundreds of years, educators are now redefining educational experiences to make them more fun and powerful by taking advantage of today’s technology, especially video,” she says.
