Curriculum: Understanding YouTube & Digital Citizenship – Google in Education

Curriculum: Understanding YouTube & Digital Citizenship – Google in Education | technologies | Scoop.it

Google just launched a set of 10 interactive lessons designed to support practitioners in educating learners on digital citizenship.

 

Google (which owns YouTube) built the lessons to educate learners about...

- YouTube’s policies,

- how to flag content,

- how to be a safer online citizen, and protect their identities.

 

Follow this link to access the list of lessons, and the recommended flow for delivery.

 

Lessons are designed to fit within 50 minute classes, but can be adapted to fit a different schedule(s)

 

There is even an entire YouTube channel of related videos that should be of interest to anyone looking to teach about digital citizenship.:

eReputation is important to Learning Providers just as much as it is for their learners and other stakeholders.

Plizy

Plizy changes the way learners and/or practitioners discover and share videos and makes video-watching a more personalized and social experience.

 

Plizy allows users to also create a custom channel, which grants them more control over what is watched; the Pandora-like recommendation system is based on the videos users watch and the ones you don’t. This allows Plizy to curate content that it knows users will like. 

 

It also has a convenient tab where practitioners can communicate with learners based on the videos being watched.

YouTube - clea.nr

YouTube can be a great source of educational material to share in a learning environment.

 

Searching YouTube in front of a class, leaves practitioners open to the possibility that something inappropriate will pop-up.

 

Use http://youtube.clea.nr or the Cleaner Internet browser extension and avoid that potential problem.

 

Point a browser to http://youtube.clea.nr and search YouTube and watch YouTube videos without viewing any of the "related" videos or advertisements on YouTube.

Splicd · Get Straight To The Point | technologies | Scoop.it

Splicd is an invaluable service that lets users, practitioners and learners alike, select and share a segment of a YouTube video.

I found Splicd a simple and easy service to use;

select a video from YouTube, copy the video's url into Splicd, then enter the start and end times of the video segment required. This service has so much potential within education - resources, evidence, presentations etc.

Google Mobile | technologies | Scoop.it

Many learning providers block a number of websites including YouTube.

 

The new YouTube app for Android, makes Educational YouTube channels available to learners via their mobiles.

 

With less screen space on mobile phones than a laptop or TV, the YouTube app provides a guide on the left side of the screen that provides instant access to channels, and a feed updating the new videos.

YouTube for Schools

Learning providers don't have to block YouTube, they do have some great options for using YouTube differently. 

 

This is a YouTube that has been created just for schools.

 

Network administrators must be involved so that they can add this option for YouTube into their filtering system.

 

YouTibe for schools...

- is a completely customizable option that lets teachers and administrators add videos to a playlist that they have predetermined they want learners to watch.

- is where Practitioners can find videos by Common Core Standard, subject or grade.

- is where Learners can watch videos that teachers and administrators have approved or any YouTube Edu video (think Kahn Academy, PBS, TED, Stanford, etc.).

crashcourse - YouTube | technologies | Scoop.it

Two courses in one channel: John Green teaches world history and Hank Green teaches biology.

 

There are now up to 15 videos in each course.

 

The videos are fast-paced ten to twelve minute overviews of major concepts and themes.

 

It's the fast pace of the Crash Course videos that makes them better suited for reviews or introductions to topics rather than a replacement for lectures and/or documentary videos.

SnipReel - alpha | technologies | Scoop.it

Let's just think about assessment video clips: Many Assessors capture evidence via video clips.

 

But in addition to the required evidence/information, videos include undesired scenes.

 

Snipreel helps assessors/other users watch and share only the important parts of a video.

 

Snipreel lets users paste in the URL of a YouTube video and then set markers for important portions of the vide, to make up a 60-second long reel. Snips are merged to make a new video and the URL can be used in ePortfolios, presentations etc.

 

Although video embedding is currently unsupported, it is a feature that, we are told, will soon be available.

Videos and cool science experiments from Steve Spangler and SteveSpanglerScience.com...

One Youtube channel that Family Learning and Science Practitioner should check out is Steve Spangler Science.

Steve's Youtube channel shares lots of big Science activities and events that he has been involved in. However, there are also a number of ‘Sick Science’ videos which feature tricks and experiments that can be played in the classroom. They’re ideal for provoking discussion about how the ‘trick’ works and talking about the Science concepts involved.

Practitioners could also try to recreate the experiment as many of them involve everyday classroom objects.

YouTube and Creative Commons: raising the bar on user creativity

YouTube and Creative Commons: raising the bar on user creativity | technologies | Scoop.it
Allowing broad noncommercial use of otherwise protected material significantly expands the pool of resources faculty and learners can use in teaching and learning. Knowing quickly and easily whether a piece of content can be distributed, modified, or remixed fits well with the teaching style of many practitioners—they want to be able to search for up-to-the-minute artifacts and include them in lectures and learning materials, without having to worry about obtaining permission.

On June 2nd 2011, YouTube announced that they are now offering video creators the option to label their works with Creative Commons licenses. If educators choose to use Creative Commons licensing, people will be able to use parts of their videos and create remixes according to the Creative Commons rules. This means that practitioners and/or learners who want to create videos now have more options than before.
