YouTube for Teachers

YouTube is one of the best online education sites on the Internet.  The problem has been that YouTube is also filled with every kind of video, from sublime lectures by some of the great minds of the century to the bone snapping stunts of marginally sane teens, to the grungy mumblings of the fringe.  It's like much of the Internet: a mixed bag of nuts with some real gems if you know how to find them.

Many school districts ban the use of YouTube because it is easier to just say no and cover your liability than spending the time to evaluate content and use a great resource the kids already have after school (and on their phone) access too in the first place.

YouTube has taken steps to create a safe silo of content for teachers everywhere.  Other services like TeacherTube and Schooltube have been providing this service as well.

Let's hope that creating YouTube Teachers (http://www.youtube.com/teachers) will make it easier for someone in a district office to punch the filter button and let the video stream.

Using Mobile Technologies to Enhance Learning

EDUC 744 969 3 Graduate Units 
October 3 – November 30, 2011











Enroll NOW!

Fundamental to the modern definition of mlearning is that it is the learner/learning that is mobile, not the device.

In-depth analysis of mobile learning research, trends, instructional strategies, curriculum integration, professional development, and on-the-job training using handheld technology such as the iPad, iPod Touch, iPhone, and smartphones.






This course will explore learning design, content, and critical factors that need to be considered for successful application in a mobile environment. It will help educators and trainers develop effective pedagogy and instructional strategies that capitalize on learners' interest and access to mobile technology and use that familiarity to meet learning, professional development and training goals.
