Using video in the classroom is not completely new. However, with the emergence of YouTube and user-friendly video creation technologies, video in the classroom has taken on new and exciting forms. In this forum, Steve Ross (Psychology) and Cumi Ikeda (Writing Studies) will talk about the ways in which they have been integrating YouTube into their teaching to demonstrate content, analyze material collaboratively, provide video tutorials, watch experiments, introduce a topic through various media forms, play music, and embed content in presentations.
Ways to use YouTube
- texts/media that are mentioned in readings
- interviews with authors
- student reference (not shown in class)
- context for lesson/added material to a lesson
- comic relief
