Youtube Playlist - Directed Visual Learning

Looking to engage students? Worksheets - Check, Lecturing - Check, hmm, I'm out of ideas. Take a look at any 10 year old with a device, and you will see that YouTube is rather engaging to them. Side note: Do you hear clapping and a catchy theme song in your head? Students should not be allowed to freely search YouTube without adult supervision. Luckily, YouTube has provided us with a way to direct and guide students to appropriate curriculum rich videos. It's called YouTube Playlist. Start with a topic, search for videos on YouTube, review the video for content and safety, add to playlist, then share with the world. That's it.

I produced a video (2:00) on how to create a YouTube Playlist.
