YouTube Linky Party

I believe that learning should be active, exciting, and engaging.  Part of the problem with engaging and motivating students, is that we continue to give them old-fashioned paper and pencil work, while they are craving a medium that speaks their language - technology. I would be lost without technology. One source I use daily is YouTube. I’m lucky to not have this site blocked at y school. YouTube is one of the biggest resources for educational content. Whenever I’m in need of a song, video, or book I search YouTube. You can find videos that make the subject of your lesson more applicable to students’ everyday lives. There are a tons of reasons YouTube should be a part of most classrooms:
·         Engage your students by captivating their attention
·         Provide real-world context for lessons.
·         Help provide cultural relevance for your students.
·         Provide remediation for concepts yet mastered.
·         Provide visual aides
I'd love for you to join my linky party. I might even have a great prize for one lucky person who links up.
Here are 3 of my  favorites :


  1. I agree with you completely. I've just started getting into YouTube for the class now that I have my smart board up and running. If I find something good I'll be sure to link up:)
    Thanks for doing this.

  2. You are lucky... youtube is blocked through my school. I can get it on my iPad but the quality of the video when I use the elmo to project it is very poor. I've tried using schooltube and teachertube, but the content is much more limited. I like your videos though.... wish I could share them with my students!

  3. It used to be blocked at my school, but our sts unblocked it before this school year. I was sooo excited! I use it everyday. I linked up!

  4. Thanks for linking up. I don't know what I would do if it ever gets blocked. Maybe cry?

  5. Thanks! I'm looking forward to everyone's picks.

  6. Such a great idea for a party! And I love Dr. Jeans song! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Thanks for linking up! I've found some great new songs and videos.

  8. I am glad to find your site and I share your love of technology and how powerful it is for our students. I am blocked out of youtube, schooltube, teachertube and probably every other -tube out there!! :( I did have a way to convert that I havent tried in a while. I will have to resurrect that information. Thanks for these great resources.


LOVE hearing from you!
