"With one billion monthly users (and growing), YouTube's popularity is a pretty clear indication that video is a powerful medium. And kids' unrelenting fascination with videos is motivating many educators to find ways to leverage them for all kinds of purposes."

Video's should enhance instruction, not supplant it.  However, some videos do a better job than teachers do.  Interesting guide and be sure to follow the links.  We like to suggest that videos "activate thinking"  and compel students to come up with further questions.  This is very common core, as the students then would have to "research and investigate" to build knowledge and have an evidence-based discussion!
