YouTube is an incredible phenomenon! Would you agree? Hate it or love it, you can not deny it's impact on our students perspectives about the world they live in.
School districts across the country are banning access to the YouTube site because of the amount of garbage that's posted. Overall, this garbage is such a small percentage of the videos that are available. However it's the garbage that get the press coverage . . . . . I'll stoop there- I'm entering rant mode.
What we as educators need to do is simply show kids how to properly use this tool to give them a voice. it's a means of having them critically think about any subject matter.
