One of my roles is to serve as the Network Coordinator and help facilitate the Internet filtering.  Well, educators are awesome at finding value in tools that others may see as "entertainment".  In this case, YouTube does provide a wealth of education resources and this list just touches on a few.  Thanks to EdTechReview for compiling this list.

Those of you reading my share please add any additional channels that are beneficial to educators in their comments feed.
