With the mass amount of videos on the web the educational potential of these videos is immense.  Teachers can find short video explanations to assist students in leaning on almost any topic.

Often the use of this type of technology in schools is hindered by the fact that teachers are unaware and unsure of how to use new technology. Technology is changing quickly and teachers often don’t have the time to look up and research new technologies to use in their classrooms. This post is the first of a series on how to use Youtube.

The video below is a quick overview of Youtube explaining the basics of what this website has to offer. This video was developed to assist teachers in the Clarkston School District to help them develop an understanding of YoutTube and how to use this website in the classroom.
