It’s back! Youtube for Teachers Special

It’s been a while, sorry!

This post is all about YouTube, and has lots of useful channels for you!

Enjoy

Welcome to the first digital digest in a long while (sorry about that!).  This is a YouTube/Video special, and listed below are the best of the multitude of videos and channels available online.  Our students are part of the ‘post-Google’ generation – they are more likely to look something up on YouTube than Google.  This is by no means definitive, but it’s a good place to start.  Not sure if this is for you? Have a look at this… https://youtu.be/8qjge9U_MiA and this… https://youtu.be/9WVKBAqjHiE

Enjoy!
