YouTube EDU

As you have heard, soon (2/1) we will be switching to YouTube for Schools.  What this means:

1) When students go to YouTube they will now be directed to YouTube EDU.  They will no longer be able to access regular YouTube.

2) When you go to YouTube you will now be directed to YouTube EDU.  If you would like access to all of YouTube, you will need to give me your YouTube username.  There is a video below that shows you how to set up your YouTube account and where you'll find your username.  Once you have chosen a username, please add it to this Google Doc

Your username can just be your email username (for ex. paquettea, or another name, mine is HartfordK8Tech.  Yours can be your class name).

*If you do not provide me with your YouTube username, you will only be able to access YouTube EDU content.  You can send me your YouTube username at any time.

3) You can use your YouTube channel to collect and share video resources. You can create playlists (folders) of videos to share with your students.  This is a great way to organize videos and share specific resources in a safe and managed way with your students.  Students should suscribe to your YouTube Channel to view content you have saved and organized.

Please view the video tutorials and information below for more information.  If you would like help setting up your YouTube Channel and creating playlists, please let me know and I would be happy to help you.

We will be testing the switch on the inservice on 1/18, so your access to YouTube will be limited that day.  We hope to make the final switch on February 1st.

If you have any questions, please let me know.
